GCSE Citizenship started this petition to wolverhampton council

In many parks in Wolverhampton, there are a lot crimes committed. There are closing times for parks, but there is no one to make sure that people don't enter the parks after that time and also, sometimes, the gates are left open. With this petition we want to collect as many signatures as possible and hear many views and opinions to take action and contact the park department, so that a change could be made.

We think that this problem can be solved in different ways, such as: increase the security in the parks by having an police officer for each entrance, one that is watching the children area and another one that makes hourly check ups, more hidden CCTV with a higher quality and employ someone who looks at the cameras 24\7. Also, offer volunteering options as security guards would be a good idea, but of course they would have to be trained.

We are a group of citizens from Wolverhampton and we are aware of the fact that there are a lot of crimes taking place in Wolverhampton parks, such as the story of Viktorija Sokolova in West Park that was "smashed in" with a hammer-like object or a man who was stabbed to death in Ashmore Park by three people and many more cases that do not get noticed. 

We are doing this as part of our college course, but of course we truly want to make your park visit as safe as possible.

If nothing changes, there will be many more lives lost!
