BA Criminology Undergraduates work with the North Yorkshire Youth Commission

Following a call from the North Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner in July 2015 some of our BA Criminology Students have participated in the North Yorkshire Youth Commission. Ida Sadlowska, Fay Wileman, Sarah McMullen, Jake Longhorn, Amy Collingwood (all 2nd year), and Enya Lee and Samantha Burns (3rd year) all helped conduct a survey of some 1500 young people at various venues across the county to find out what they wanted from the police. They found that young people wanted police officers to be more consistent in how they interact with the age group and not judge them on age or appearance. A formal report is currently being collated.
