HOW LABOUR SHOULD FIGHT CRIME

In its continuing series of 'blue-sky' sketches of what Labour's manifesto should include, The Guardian (29 May, p10) carried an article on how crime should be tackled.

The next Labour government should show its determination to tackle both crime and the causes of crime by building on its current target to cut car-related offences by building on its current target by 30% - and announce an even more ambitious long-term objective; halving the rate of acquisitive crime from the peak it reached in 1992.

A whole range of anti-crime measures would be used: dealing with school exclusions, diverting young people from crime, making good harder to steel, concentrating resources on crime hotspots, and making prisons work in preventing criminals offending.
