The Police and Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire has announced a funding extension to explore the findings of their latest report.
The Youth Commission was set up last July to support, challenge and inform young people of the work Police and Crime Commissioner and North Yorkshire Police carry out.
The report is a key part of a 'Big Conversation' gathering the views of at least 1,600 young people. It is to talk about issues affecting them and create a set of recommendations to present back to the Commissioner, North Yorkshire Police and partner agencies.
The six priorities for this year were:
- Legal Highs and Drug Abuse
- Cyber-bullying and Internet Safety
- Hate Crime
- Vulnerable Young People
- Preventing Youth Crime
- Relationship with the Police
The Commission’s report is a first for North Yorkshire. Never before have we heard the views of over 1,600 young people in relation to policing and personal safety. As a consequence, North Yorkshire Police’s strategy for young people will be reviewed and updated. The report also comes at a very pertinent time, when the police are preparing to increase the money dedicated to protecting children and vulnerable people.
