To enforce stricter laws for teenagers involved in crime.

We are continuously noticing a significant increase of crime rates especially in Victoria. Australia is one of the best country in the world to live in however it has been deeply affected by crime.

The recent occurrences of burglaries, carjackings and other criminal activities are having a profound and negative impact on people living in almost every city especially Melbourne. As a result of this we now feel unsafe in our own homes.

Crime rate in VIC has increased by 13% last year and further this year. Masked and armed offenders are robbing businesses, ramming police cars.

The Police have been doing what they can with limited resources to try and catch the offenders including arresting same offenders, but underage offenders are let off lightly. If there are no strong repercussions, this will inevitably lead to an increase in crime in local communities. The offenders appear to be undeterred by the arrests as they know that they will be given a slap on the wrist and let off.

Australian residents want Daniel Andrews (Premier of VIC), Matthew Guy (Leader of Opposition VIC) Minister of Police, the judiciary system and everyone responsible for the safety of the Australian community to unite and enforce stricter punishments based on the crime committed instead of the age of the offender.To make them accountable for the damage caused and a system of retribution to the victims and their families, Australia wide.

This problem has gone worse significantly, if swift action is not taken it will keep increasing and many other innocent families and businesses will affect. Currently victims are being injured physically and mentally by underage criminals. Nationally, we are all paying the price through higher insurance premiums for being in “at-risk” neighborhoods, and the current insurance systems will become increasingly overloaded with people who need help.

Australia is one of the best countries to live in and in an ideal world we would like it to be peaceful and free of crime. We should be able to sleep in our homes without fear of being broken into. And be able to go out at anytime and be confident that our hard earned assets and family members will be safe.

We urge you to re-evaluate the judiciary system in order to find strict and immediate solutions that will deter young offenders.
