Police chief's pledge on beat bobbies.
Norman Bettison assured them that tackling local disorder is high on his list of operational priorities.
He pledged that more bobbies will be on the beat once the current crop of trainees are ready in two years time.
Merseyside MPs, meeting Mr Bettison at Westminster last night, told him that the main worries of people on estates were problems caused by out-ofcontrol youngsters.
Riverside Labour MP Louise Ellman said: "It is kids causing trouble - everything from just being a nuisance to more serious offences - which troubles my constituents most.
"The chief constable said he understood such concerns and will give it high priority."
Earlier this week police chiefs warned it would be 2003 before there could be extra officers on the streets.
