My pensioner in-laws had exactly the same problem....
Being harassed by hoodlums who smashed windows, were in and out of their garden, vandalism, verbal abuse, abuse from their ignorant parents ... 10 year olds hanging around the streets at 11am on White Lightning, that kind of thing ... you can guess the type.
Had the police round who said they can't do anything ... they need evidence, to see an offence being committed (even though these louts and their families were known to the Plod, they couldn't do anything) ... so the in-laws installed CCTV...
And were told it would be inadmissible as evidence and infringes the perps' right to privacy so it had to be switched off.
The council were even more hopeless and even accused the in-laws of provoking the little tosswits. It's all upside down and mad ... like Htrae (or Planet Bizzaro) in the DC comics where everything's arse backwards
I had to chuckle at you being told the various council departments will work together on this...
That'll be a f'ckin' first!! :roll:
You have my every sympathy, techmonkey.
