Mall headache


Share post:

SHERATON MALL is no day-care centre.

​That is the message from security consultant to the island’s largest mall, SAFE Security. It’s managing director Ken White appealed to parents to curb the practice of dropping off their underage and pre-teen children at the Christ Church shopping centre for sometimes an entire day and night.

​The hundreds of young girls and boys from age ten are creating headaches for the mall’s security as many of them were said to be getting up to mischief, including buying and consuming alcohol.

Some youngsters were even being left outside the mall as late as midnight, creating challenges concerning their safety.

The problem is particularly acute during the long summer holiday and it came to a head last Tuesday when more than 500 young people descended on the mall for the hugely popular “$6 Tuesday” at Olympus Cinemas.

On that occasion, the mall’s security officers were forced to seek police assistance after two fights broke out, causing panic among the children.
