Young people have been asked for their views on what they think are the most effective ways to tackle crime.

Leicestershire and Rutland Police and Crime Commissioner Sir Clive Loader will attend the next meeting of the Rutland Youth Council on September 11.

Rutland and Leicestershire is the first area in the country to sign up to a “Youth Commission” pilot project in which the commissioner will work with young people to develop strategies to address issues in their areas.

These could include offending and re-offending, hate crime and drug crime.

Rutland county councillor Kenneth Bool (Con) is portfolio holder for children’s services.

He said: “It’s important young people are given the opportunity to make their views heard on what they think are the most effective ways to tackle crime.”

Sir Clive also wants people to join his group of Independent Custody Visitors covering Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.
