Children and the Police

Read more

 

In July 2013 the All Party Parliamentary Group for Children began an inquiry into ‘Children and the Police’. This explored the police’s relationships with children and young people, how the police seek to engage with children and young people; and children and young people’s views of the police.

The inquiry’s final report, published in October 2014, set out recommendations for policing and government bodies to support police forces to improve the way they work with children and young people.

On 30 November 2015, the All Party Parliamentary Group for Children published a new report that examined progress made over the past year and the remaining gaps and challenges, focusing on four key areas:

  • the promotion of good practice
  • reducing the prosecution of children
  • the detention of young people in police custody
  • stop and search.
