Kent's new Youth Police Commissioner Kerry Boyd has set out her aims for the year ahead.
The 19-year-old hopes to engage with youngsters by visiting schools and youth groups and raise awareness of knife and drug crime as well as keeping safe online.
She will also make sure that young people's opinions are reflected in the Commissioner's Police and Crime Plan that sets out the vision for policing in Kent.
