Do you know what your children are up to tonight?
Following a spate of anti-social incidents in the #Rhondda and #Taff areas over the past two nights we are asking ‘Do you know what your children are up to?’
The question are Rhondda Cynon Taf Community Wardens worth the expense to council taxpayers?
RCT Council say Community Wardens will respond to reports of anti-social behaviour and enforce the Public Spaces Protection.

A dispersal order was put in place last night in #Porth due to groups of youths meeting up to fight each other. The order allows officers the power to require people to leave the area to reduce the risk of causing harassment, alarm or distress to the local community and to also reduce the risk of any further public disorder.
Neighbourhood Policing Inspector Mark Saunders said:
I’d like to reassure the local communities that we’re here to keep them safe and we are taking robust action against those who have been involved in the antisocial behaviour of the past two nights.
We believe the fights are pre-arranged and the behaviour of those involved, who are aged 15 and 16, is not acceptable and is not going to be tolerated.
As parents and guardians, do you know what your children are getting up to of an evening? They may go out with mates but can quickly become involved in antisocial behaviour which is affecting local residents.
We know that the kids are coming together from a range of areas in Rhondda Cynon Taff. I would ask parents and guardians to be aware of where their children are and who they are with.
