VPD expecting to see juvenile crime increase during Summer months

VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Valdosta Police are on the look out for more juveniles committing crimes now that school is out for Summer break.
 
Police said there's no one specific crime that increases during the Summer.
But, they said juvenile crime does go up because many kids simply get bored and are looking for something to do.
 
"[We] don't see a great increase in crime, but you do see more involving juveniles because they are out of school," Valdosta Police Department Lieutenant Aaron Kirk explained. "They have a lot of extra time on their hands, so they're able to get into other activities."
 
Valdosta Police aren't planning any extra patrols for the Summer but are ready to do so if needed.
