TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House the growing concern regarding juvenile criminal activities.

 

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to place a "Street Curfew" on all juveniles between the ages of 10 and 16 between the times of 11pm and 5am unless accompanied by an adult/parent/guardian.  By doing so, this would hopefully stop the number of juveniles roaming around suburban streets and involving themselves in criminal activity.  If juveniles do not adhere to such punishment, a longer sentence must be implemented when they face court. Juveniles who are repeat offenders must receive "Longer Sentencing" as the short sentencing is clearly not working.
