MP backs curfew calls

Pauline Latham OBE MP for Mid-Derbyshire has welcomed government proposals for tougher curfews in order to keep the streets safe.

She said: “These tougher curfew conditions will keep offenders off the street for longer, stop them socialising in the evenings and keep them away from situations that could land them in trouble again,”

She supports extending the maximum daily curfew from 12 to 16 hours and extending the potential length of sentence from six months to a year so as to better protect communities.
