Still time to sign up to this year’s PCC youth conference
Young people from across Essex still have the chance to make their views count by attending this year’s PCC youth conference.
Nick Alston, Police and Crime Commissioner for Essex, will be hosting the second annual youth conference on Wednesday August 5.
The conference will focus on key issues affecting young people in Essex and will enable those attending to share their thoughts and views on crime and their relationship with the police.
Serious topics such as hate crime, cyber bullying and online grooming will be on the agenda and experts from Essex Police, Show Racism the Red Car and the South Essex Rape and Incest Crisis Centre will speak on the issues as well as hosting workshops.
Workshops will focus on the rights of young people, particularly in relation to stop and search, as well as hate crime.
Young people attending will also be able to take part in a filming session exploring their thoughts on hate crime on camera. The final film will then be shared with schools across Essex as part of their education programme around hate crime.
The event takes place at Chelmsford City Football Club on Wednesday August 5th. Registration is at 10am for a prompt 10.30am start.
Places at the conference are limited. Any young people interested in attending can contact Katy Sparrow at the Office for the PCC via email at [email protected] or 01245 291608.
