Youth Commissioners represent young people across the West Midlands. They are aged 18 and under. The job of the Youth Commissioner is to advise the Police and Crime Commissioner on issues affecting them and their peers.
Each Neighbourhood Policing Area has two elected Youth Commissioners serving two year terms.
As a Youth Commissioner you can be asked to do the following:
- Consult young people on the Commissioner’s Police and Crime Plan.
- Speak directly with the Police and Crime Commissioner, police officers and decision makers, raising issues affecting young people including community safety, youth justice, victim services and crime prevention.
- Engage and consult with other young people in their local communities and listen to their views.
- Hold West Midlands Police to account for the service they provide for young people.
- Build relationships with police and break down barriers that exist between officers and young people.
