Met Police Launch Youth Website

A youth website has been launched by police for the first time.  The site focusses on keeping safe and provides information, advice and contacts for young people. Chief Superintendant Adrian Hancock highlights the reasons for the site:

“Young people can be as many as three times more likely to be the victim of a street robbery than any other age group so Safe is just one way we can give them advice on how to keep safe.”

16-year old Wandsworth pupil Ollie Hughes recently tried the website and said: “Young people are a lot more internet savvy than their parents and we’re usually a lot more comfortable online and know how to research and find information so I think Safe would be used by young people to find things out. I think Safe is really easy to use as you get to just read the things you’re interested in or what you want to find out about.”
