The Youth Commission is made up of young people aged between 14 and 25.

The purpose of the Youth Commission is to make young people part of the solution to tackling crime and improving policing, rather than being seen as part of the problem.


Youth Commission Members:

  • Talk with young people in their communities to understand their policing and criminal justice concerns

  • Provide opportunities for young people to inform, support and challenge the Police and Crime Commissioners work

  • Identify the root causes of problems, make recommendations for change and work on solutions

Members identify priority areas relating to young people in the two counties around police and crime. They then:

  • Gather opinions from peers on these priorities through ‘Big Conversation’ postcards and an online survey to understand their policing and criminal justice concerns

  • Tackle the priorities by raising awareness through engagement events and media campaigns

  • Make recommendations for change and suggest solutions for the priority areas

  • Represent the Youth Commission at relevant events, conferences and meetings

  • Link with Hampshire Constabulary and Criminal Justice parnters
