Reporter Isabell Petrinic and photographer Natalie Roberts asked people at the bus rank opposite Arthur Whitling Reserve, Castle Hill, about how youth behaved there.

Our question was prompted by the comments of Hills crime manager Detective Inspector Gary Bailey in Hills youth in trouble: group calls for social worker in this week's Hills News.

He said while officers were not noticing ‘‘any huge amounts of antisocial behaviour’’ from our youth, the main places they did misbehave were the bus depot opposite Arthur Whitling Reserve, Castle Hill, and Balcombe Heights Estate in Baulkham Hills, ‘‘especially of a Thursday night’’.

He said officers patrolled all of the shopping centres in the Hills local area command patrol every day, but ramped up patrols on Thursday nights.

About 15 per cent of The Hills population is aged 10 to 19.
