The youth crime action plan is a comprehensive, cross-government analysis of what
the government is going to do to tackle youth crime.
It sets out a 'triple track' approach of enforcement and punishment where behaviour is
unacceptable, non-negotiable support and challenge where it is most needed, and
better and earlier prevention.
It makes clear that the government will not tolerate behaviour that causes misery and
suffering for innocent victims.
