From October 2013 to September 2014 we consulted thousands of young people aged 11-25 to find out what they think about policing so that they can contribute to the work and decisions of Police and Crime Commissioner Alan Charles and foster better relations between the police and the younger generation.
Ultimately the Commissioner wishes to reduce the number of young entrants into the Criminal Justice System and the surprisingly large number of young people who become victims of crime.
A series of events were held to engage with younger people throughout Derbyshire an example of this was the Commissioners consultation event held at Police HQ in Ripley, Derbyshire on 5th June where over 100 young people attended.
The Commissioners Youth Survey launched at the University of Derby on 2nd April 2014 and recieved nearly 3,500 responses.
The work was shared with partners at the Commissioners Youth Summit on 24th September 2014.
The Commissioner will continue to consult with young people on key areas of his Police and Crime Plan throughout his term in office.
