The Police and Crime Commissioner’s Youth Commission is launching its Big Conversation 2021, asking young people for their views on topical crime and policing issues.
This year the focus of the Big Conversation is on hate crime, the exploitation of young people, for example through grooming and county lines, and serious violence, such as knife crime.
The Youth Commission acts as the voice of young people, informing and supporting Police and Crime Commissioner, Michael Lane, in his work.
Each year Youth Commission members consult with young people aged 14-25 on issues important to them and seek ideas on how these can be tackled. They also work to raise awareness and educate young people on their chosen priorities via campaigns. They run workshops, speak at events and take part in a range of other activities.
They are keen to hear from as many young people as possible.
The Big Conversation can be found online at cutt.ly/3lgHse4.
