Jonathan Djanogly MP: Tougher curfews to keep streets safer in Huntingdonshire


15th August 2011

Jonathan Djanogly, Member of Parliament for the Huntingdon constituency, has welcomed Government proposals for tougher community sentences that will see offenders forced to spend longer in their homes, keeping the streets safer.

Extending the maximum daily curfew time from 12 to 16 hours, and the period for which they can be imposed from six to 12 months, will better protect communities and ensure offenders face meaningful punishments that help stop them reoffending. Curfews not only restrict liberty but they can bring order to chaotic lives.

These new proposals are part of the Government’s plans to reform sentencing and tackle the root causes of offending.

Mr Djanogly said:

“These tougher curfew conditions will keep offenders in Huntingdonshire off the street for longer, stop them socialising in the evenings and keep them away from situations that could land them in trouble again.

“This is part of the Government’s proposals to reform the Criminal Justice System and will help to keep communities safe whilst important work is done with offenders to turn them away from a life of crime.”
