Reduction in crime
Humberside crime commissioner Matthew Grove has hailed GHoPA as one of the reasons for less youth related antisocial behaviour.
In an article in the Grimsby Telegraph (Tuesday, January 8, 2013) a reported 60 per cent reduction in youth-related antisocial behaviour was thanks to diversionary activities such as football academies and the Get Hooked on Positive Activities initiative – which includes fishing, Golf and youth club activities.
Although GHoPA cannot take full credit for this 60 per cent drop in antisocial behaviour, we would like to think that we are making a huge difference in the Humberside region.
