North Riverside Park Mall to implement youth escort policy
NORTH RIVERSIDE – A new policy to be implemented at North Riverside Park Mall is designed to confront the perception of a problem, a representative of the shopping center said.
The mall will put a youth escort policy into effect by the end of the month, said Lidia Darkova, marketing director for the mall. At 6 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, individuals ages 17 and younger must be supervised by an adult, or they will be asked to leave the mall, according to the policy.
“The number of security incidents involving teenagers has actually decreased, but the number of young people in the mall unsupervised has increased,” Darkova said. “Research has shown that some shoppers may not come to a mall if there are large numbers of youths in there unsupervised.”
