Youth comment on local policing

Young people are being given the chance to influence local policing with the Metropolitan Police's online survey.

Youngsters who live or go to school in London can comment on areas where they feel unsafe and their thoughts on policing and crime.

The Safer Schools Partnership officers will work with secondary schools to build the survey into lesson plans.

Ch Supt Adrian Hanstock said the survey would give "a valuable insight into the thoughts and feelings of young people".

"The information provided will be used to shape the community policing priorities tackled by the Safer Neighbourhoods police teams and help to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour and increase feelings of safety," he said.

"We take the concerns of young people very seriously and the survey is a key engagement tool allowing them to help make a positive difference to where they live or go to school."

The survey runs from Monday until 31 October.
