A new Youth Commissioner has been appointed in Kent. It's the only county to have such a role - designed to act as a bridge between the police and young people. But after last year's controversial appointment, the new youth PCC said she's going to be much more careful. John Ryall reports.
Kerry Boyd, from Margate, has been appointed as the new Youth Commissioner. Kerry, aged 19, will start part-time as of the 5th March 2014, taking up the role full-time as of the beginning of April.
The new Youth Commissioner will be taking a gap year from her degree in Education Studies and Business Studies to commence the role. In her spare time she is an active runner and a keen supporter of Chelsea FC. She also enjoys driving, music and was a London 2012 Olympic Torchbearer.
