its common sense... get people found guilty of petty crimes to do community service.. such as cleaning up the town.. let them get rid of the weed, clean up the rubbish.. etc.
this works on two fronts..
1. it cleans up the town
2. it will deter some people from committing petty crimes.
its a win win .. and it saves wages for the council.
Or get the people on jobseekers to take part in this too. When I was on it.. i would of loved to have projects like cleaning up the lake, planting flowers etc to keep me busy.
the people in power are too soft.
