Child Centred Policing – Hampshire Constabulary

Hampshire Constabulary’s Child Abuse Investigations Team want to give you a brief insight into child-centred policing and how together we can help keep children safe.

It is their commitment to provide children and young people with a first-class policing response that is child-centred and part of an integrated and effective partnership approach.

The key to this approach is putting the voices and needs of children and young people at the heart of the services they deliver.

To give you more of an insight, Hampshire’s Child Centred Policing Strategy sets out our commitment to improving the quality of policing for children and young people in order to make them SAFER.

So how can you help make children safer? The Safe4me website contains a whole host of information and guidance for parents, carers and professionals on a range of topics to help you support, educate and guide children on various issues they may face, to help them stay safe.

It also gives details about the various charities and organisations you can contact should you need any help or advice about a child you may be concerned about; whether that be concerns they may be a victim of crime or being exploited and becoming involved in crime themselves.

We really would encourage anyone who has or works with children to take a look at this resource. Together we can all help keep them safe.

To report any concerns to police, you can call us on 101 or report online at

In an emergency or if a crime is in progress, always dial 999.
