Police Scotland Argyll & West Dunbartonshire
By Bill Heaney
Police in West Dunbartonshire and Argyll and Bute were keeping a close watch on schools and licensed premises near them for young people leaving education for the last time and “celebrating” their departure by drinking to excess.
The “we’ll be watching you” warning came along with congratulations from the Force on what is traditionally a big day for the pupils.
It is however a day when matters can get out of hand when, after drinking, young people have a history of becoming involved in anti social behaviour.
And putting a stain on their character which could stay with them for the rest of their lives as they go on to apply for employment or access to further education.
A Police Scotland spokesperson said today: “We would like to congratulate all school leavers across Argyll and West Dunbartonshire.
