Custodial Sentences for serial offenders and a co-ordinated approach to youth crime: RGDATA on RTE Saturday View

RGDATA Director General Tara Buckley told RTE’s Saturday View that Retail Crime remained one of the biggest stresses and costs for independent retailers. She called for more prison spaces to allow for custodial sentences for repeat offenders and organised crime gangs engaged in retail theft and a co-ordinated approach between the Departments of Justice, Education, Social Welfare and Enterprise to deal with “out of control” youth crime and anti-social behaviour.
