Youth Commissioner’s Big Conversation

The Police and Crime Commissioner’s Youth Commission is undertaking its Big Conversation 2022, asking young people for their views on topical crime and policing issues.

This year the focus of the Big Conversation is on hate and hostility, substance misuse and being safe on the streets.

The Youth Commission acts as the voice of young people, informing and supporting the Police and Crime Commissioner in their work, and in challenging the Chief Constable on areas that are of importance to young people.

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’re keen to hear from as many young people as possible, the Big Conversation can be found online at  and closes on September 30th. Please kindly share with anyone you know who falls within the age group.
