There is an opportunity for young people on the Isle of Wight to join the Strategic Youth Independent Advisory Group that advises Hampshire Constabulary on their engagement with young people.
The Strategic Youth Independent Advisory Group (YIAG) is a voluntary group made up of young people who are independent from the police. It meets six times a year, to review and challenge policing practices in a constructive way. This helps improve the police service to the public.
This is a volunteer group for those aged 14 to 25 which enables you to be involved in reviewing, challenging and scrutinising the police. You don’t need any qualifications or experience, we just ask that you help by providing your opinions and insight.
As a YIAG member, you will represent yourself and the views of your community. So we ask you to consult with others and will help to arrange some sessions for you, but you will need to undertake your own consultation too.
You’ll present the findings directly to senior police officers. The police will take on board your findings but can’t always act on all your suggestions, however they value your ideas and comments and are keen to hear from as many young people as possible.
