The Norfolk Youth Commission allows young people to get involved and have their say about policing and crime where they live.

Set up in 2017, the Youth Commission is a diverse group of young people, aged between 14 and 25, from all over the Norfolk policing area.

By being part of the Youth Commission, its members help shape decisions about crime and policing, supporting, challenging and informing the work of Norfolk’s Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC), Lorne Green.

The Youth Commission has been established to enable young people to voice their opinions and be heard. By sharing their views and experiences of crime, policing and criminal justice system, the Commission seeks to ensure local decision-makers not only understand young people’s needs but are also working to meet them.

Through peer research, members take the work being done by the Commission to a wider youth audience, encouraging participation, gathering information and drawing conclusions to inform the recommendations they make to the PCC.
