LETTER: Good to crack down on Duke Bar kerb crawlers

i WAS delighted to read in the Express that the police were going to make a concentrated effort on kerb crawlers round the Duke Bar area of the town.

I welcome this initiative as, even I at 53 years of age, have been propositioned and it left me shaken and upset.

So could the police enlighten me as to why every night mounted police officers have passed my door, numerous times. If they care to look on the new website “Crime UK” they will see this area has minimal crime, and definitely no kerb crawlers.

Shouldn’t they be using their resources in the areas where the problem is rife?
