Children and young people - Police Scotland youth engagement

Closed 1 Dec 2019

Opened 11 Jul 2019

Overview

Police Scotland want to listen to young people and learn about their views of the police - how we're currently working and what we could do better. We want to understand the issues that affect young people and influence the way the police work, now and in the future.

As part of this engagement, we will be attending different festivals and events during the summer to talk to children and young people. This online survey complements our face-to-face engagement and encourages conversations between adults and young people. Adults and young people are invited to fill in this survey, as part of their conversations, to express their feelings and opinions in relation to young people's safety and contact with police.

How we will use the information

The information provided will allow Police Scotland to find out how we can make it easy and safe for 12 - 18 year olds to report crimes, get information or advice, and give us their feedback.  

We want to shape how we do things with communities, recognising that children and young people might have different views and preferences of contact and communication than other groups. 

This exercise forms part of our Summer Safety campaign and wider public engagement strategy for transforming how we engage and involve children and young people in shaping our approaches.
