    Officers have charged a 32 year old man following a warrant in Southport on Monday evening (16th Nov).

    Louis Bolton, 32 of Milton Street was arrested after being wanted on prison recall.
    During the warrant officers also recovered cash, cannabis and Class A drugs. An investigation into this is ongoing.

    Bolton has since been recalled back to prison until May next year.

    Op Target Inspector Dave Uren said: “I hope this arrest shows the wider public that our continued efforts to find criminals does not stop. Serious and organised crime brings fear and violence into our communities and we must work together to find those responsible and bring them to justice."

    It's remarkable isn't it.
    We get a statement from a police inspector:-

    "Serious and organised crime brings fear and violence into our communities and we must work together to find those responsible and bring them to justice."

    yet people who perpetrate these crimes are allowed back into the community, to be able to carry on as usual,before they have served their sentence.

    When will the authorities realise that the sentences issued are not severe enough.

    The only way to protect society is to imprison offenders, to keep them off the streets. Whilst inside, the community is spared the consequences of the crimes that destroy fanilies, young peoples lives, and in the long term reduce pressure on the health service, the police service.

    Because prison doesn’t work. Locking people away does not reduce the chances of them reoffending, if anything it increases the likelihood of them reoffending. Even the conservative Secretary of State for Justice in 2018 admitted the prison population was too great and shorter sentencing/community based solutions were needed.

    Obviously never been the victim of crime. If they are locked up they cant commit crime and if they dont like it they should top themselves.

    Which is obviously why idiots like you have no say in sentencing guidelines. Thankfully. Relying on people to commit suicide while inside will probably be the most least successful way of reducing crime rates. What an idiotic statement.

    Successive governments, of both colours, have allowed the Prison Service to decline. This is most evident in the levels of resources available in both staff and support services.
    The privatisation of parts of the Prison and Probation Service has been an unmitigated disaster - politicians need to accept that there are things which should never see the light of private money and the above Services are two prime examples of this.

    Successive British Crime Surveys have highlighted that it is the fear of detection which has the most deterrent effect on levels of criminality.

    I favour the 'reparation' method but, again, this needs to be properly funded and staffed. It also needs to be more severe in its enforcement and application.

    I doubt the termites they find on the end of a rope go on to commit further crime.

    Why do you feel the need to resort to insults ? Is it a sign of limited intellect ? You really do let yourself down.

    Lol. Anyone who believes that waiting round for prisoners to hang themselves in prison is a realistic answer to reducing crime, is in my opinion either extremely ignorant or just plain nuts.

    It would be a good start if the sentence imposed on a guilty party was actually carried out. By this I mean that the full length of prison sentence be adhered to and no time off awarded for good behaviour. Instead, additional time should be served for bad behaviour.

    Then that is why crime is rising so fast. If prison is no cure, then lock them all up in Pontins, with barbed wire fencing and don't allow them out - that would cure them, no-one wants to go back there.
