£6,000 recouped and 12 arrests during St Helens court crackdown

First published in News

TWELVE arrests were made and £6,000 was recouped during a crackdown on people who fail to attend at court or pay fines.

A day of action involving St Helens police officers and Her Majesty’s Court Services targeted 62 people.

Twelve were taken into custody and put before the next available court.

Sergeant Ian Peacock said: "We hope this operation sends out a message that defendants skipping bail or failing to pay their court fines, will be dealt with robustly.

"People failing to appear at court disrupts the course of justice and causes delays in the court process - often causing heart ache for victims, witnesses and their families.”

What your not saying is how much the operation cost to run, it will be far in access of the £6000 it collected

It targeted 62 people so thats a little under £100.00 each and you wont be able to get anyone to attend at a property for less than that.

Whatever it costs plus costs or fine whichever way then we will start getting to having some type of justice.
