Met Police Launch Youth Website

A youth website has been launched by police for the first time.  The site http://www.safe.met.police.uk/ focusses on keeping safe and provides information, advice and contacts for young people. Chief Superintendant Adrian Hancock highlights the reasons for the site:

“Young people can be as many as three times more likely to be the victim of a street robbery than any other age group so Safe is just one way we can give them advice on how to keep safe.”

16-year old Wandsworth pupil Ollie Hughes recently tried the website and said: “Young people are a lot more internet savvy than their parents and we’re usually a lot more comfortable online and know how to research and find information so I think Safe would be used by young people to find things out. I think Safe is really easy to use as you get to just read the things you’re interested in or what you want to find out about.”
