Young people's police and crime study

With the help of the young people that took part, we are presenting the results of a unique three-year study into young people’s attitudes towards policing and crime, and how those attitudes changed as the study group grew older.

We’re inviting young people to come along and see what we’ve discovered.

  • results will be presented using drama, music and art – it’s not all spreadsheets and pointy sticks
  • you’ll get to share your opinions on the day too – do you agree with the study group?
  • gain real insight into young people’s opinions and attitudes, and what influences them
  • there’ll be some audience participation – so be prepared to get involved!
  • rub shoulders with Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner Jim Battle and representatives of Greater Manchester Police, including Assistant Chief Constable Garry Shewan
  • enjoy free food and drink (always a winner.)

Who can come?

As well as the schools that took part, we’re inviting young people aged 12 to 14 (school years 8 and 9) from across Greater Manchester to come along. If you’re a teacher or youth worker, use the booking form to book up to 5 spaces for your group (5 children plus accompanying adults). Please be reminded that the study has already happened and this event is to present the results. There will, however, be some audience participation on the day – so come prepared!

I would be interested in bringing a group of young people from Stockport- I am a youth detached officer.

Hi Michelle, as you can see we have provided more details about the young people’s study event and can confirm it is now open to 12-14 year-olds throughout Greater Manchester, not just those schools that took part. Hope you’re still interested. 🙂

Jaya Graves

I realise that this is a closed session but I am interested whether these findings will be made available more widely. Some of us work with children and would find these interesting and possibly in the work we do or plan to do.

Kate Web Admin

Hi Jaya, Glad you’re interested in the project. 🙂 I’m pretty sure we’ll be publishing information from the event online. Are you OK to check back on this website nearer the time?

Kate Web Admin

Hi Jaya, just to confirm that the event is no longer closed. Due to the interest that’s been shown, we’ve decided to open it up to 12-14 year-olds (years 8 and 9) across Greater Manchester, not just those pupils that took part.
