Police Scotland want to listen to young people and learn about their views of the police - how they are currently working and what they could do better. We want to understand the issues that affect young people and influence the way the police work, now and in the future.
As part of this engagement, they have been attending different festivals and events during the summer to talk to children and young people. This online survey complements the face-to-face engagement and encourages conversations between adults and young people. Adults and young people are invited to fill in this survey, as part of their conversations, to express their feelings and opinions in relation to young people's safety and contact with police.
How they will use the information
The information provided will allow Police Scotland to find out how they can make it easy and safe for 12 to 18 year olds to report crimes, get information or advice, and give their feedback.
Police Scotland want to shape how they do things with communities, recognising that children and young people might have different views and preferences of contact and communication than other groups.
This exercise forms part of the Summer Safety campaign and wider public engagement strategy for transforming how they engage and involve children and young people in shaping approaches.
