Name: Pembe Tokluhan
Age: 18
Year of the Fix: 2016
Location: London
Campaign: To improve relations between young people and the police

Growing up, we felt like the police were there to  bully us so whenever we saw them we ran. This obviously made them feel like we had something to hide.

 

I now work as a sound technician and we have members of the police in our band.

 

I feel like not enough work is being done to tackle the barriers between the police and young people.

 

By having fun days and actually learning who your community officers are and understanding that they’re there to safeguard you rather than antagonise you, is very important.

 

I hope my project makes a positive impact on the way we perceive each other.

I would like to thank Frank Sweeney, youth and community worker for helping me with this Fix. He provided an interview for the ITV News item.
