From the BBC:

Pink lights show up spotty youth

Pink lighting may be introduced in public places in Lancashire in a bid to stop teenagers committing crime.

The lights are intended to create a calming atmosphere - but they also show up spots on the skin.
Insp John Ainsworth, bases in Lea, Preston, believes putting the lights in well-known trouble spots could lead to a drop in anti-social behaviour.
He has put in a bid for funding to put the lights in places such as Savick shops, Lane Ends and Plungington Road.
Police will consult residents and Lancashire County Council before anything is introduced.
Insp Ainsworth said: "Pink lighting will make a difference to some people - perhaps not the hardcore element.
"It is one of a range of measures that we are thinking of using across the region."

Didn't they try summat similar last year?,sound systems outside shops generated a high pitched whine that teenagers found uncomfortable due to their ears still being able to respond the higher frequencies,(apparently we adult quickly lose this ability) think the idea was they would move on and annoy people outside a different shop not thusly equiped,think it was banned by the local coucil hand wringers on health and safety grounds,it might turn teen brains to mush or some such,which begs the question,how would they know.
:rolleyes:
