A McDonald’s restaurant in Glasgow has reportedly been plagued with anti-social behavior by a group of teenagers in the Maryhill area.
We know that young people are not only causing problems at McDonald’s, but affecting other parts of the community as well.
McDonald’s has worked with other businesses, the police and the youth group G20 to find solutions.
Also, as a temporary measure, the Merry Hill fast food restaurant has hired private security guards on certain days to deter them from doing so.
A Glasgow City Council meeting found police were working to address the issue.
SNP MP Abdul Bostani said teenagers were “causing trouble” at McDonald’s and asked what police were doing about it at the Maryhill Area Partnership conference on Friday.
Metropolitan Police Chief John McCartin said officers were “deeply involved” in handling the matter.
The Area Partnership has agreed to award £3,202 to projects working with young people to combat anti-social behavior in Maryhill.
The Children’s Wood Project – G20 Diversionary Program receives funding to see activities offered to teenagers.
Officials said at the conference that the funding was meant to keep young people away from anti-social behavior.
