The Police and Crime Commissioner for Hampshire oversees and scrutinises policing, ensuring that Hampshire and the Isle of Wight has an efficient and effective police service. The Commissioner acts as a voice for the people, someone to lead the fight against crime, and someone to hold the police to account if they don't deliver.
In 2013 the Commissioner set up the Youth Commission to ensure that young people could have their say on crime and share their ideas on how to improve policing. The Youth Commission enables young people to be part of the solution by working in partnership with the Commissioner to tackle the issues they feel strongly about and that affect them the most.
“The Youth Commission has really given young people a voice. Their views and those gathered through the Big Conversation, have influenced the direction of policing in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. Working with Fixers helps us to raise the profile of the issues that young people care about and that the Youth Commission has highlighted as priorities.” Simon Hayes, Police and Crime Commissioner for Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.
