“It is my responsibility to see that we meet the aims of this important priority, which involves partnership working across the county. I want to ensure that young people are given the help they need to develop into responsible adults who will contribute to their community.“
Young people today face many different challenges, at home, in school and online. The impact we have on young people now, could shape the role they play in our communities as adults.
To achieve this priority, we are working with partners such as the Gloucestershire Youth Justice Partnership Board, health commissioners, community groups and police community safety officers. As well as direct action with offenders, we are focussing on prevention by developing promotional campaigns to get important messages across about internet safety, drug and alcohol use, driving safely, personal safety and sexual exploitation.
We have several ways to measure this priority including Gloucestershire’s annual online pupil survey and through evidence gathered from partner projects across the county.
Our commitments include:
- Finding out how young people view the police and how they are policed, to try to improve relationships
- Working with prolific offenders to reduce reoffending rates
- Reviewing the use of out of court disposals and the effectiveness of restorative justice practice
- Developing community programmes in areas impacted by knife crime, gang crime and sexual exploitation
- Look at how we work with young people that go missing, child sexual exploitation and young people that are the victims of domestic abuse
