Young people and policing
Policing is a priority policy area for Include Youth, it is a key children's rights issue.
The PSNI is often the first point of contact between young people and the criminal justice system, it is vital we get these interactions right however there are often strained relationships between young people and the police.
Include Youth actively engages with the PSNI, Policing Board and Police Ombudsman to make sure their practice and policies both work in the best interests of young people and that young people have a voice in their creation and implementation. You can view our policy responses here.
