Young people have their say on crime awareness sessions

Following a session on car crime and the consequences, young people who attended as part of the MixMatch Scheme gave us their views on how it went and the effects it had on them personally.

In my opinion, last week’s presentation by PC Ian Harris was very interesting.

The session showed me about twocking from my own perspective and the negative consequences that follow. I also learnt about the bad things in life.

The session was about car theft and the consequences of car theft.

We watched a few videos about vehicle theft and what will/could happen and in one of them a man got arrested and sent to prison for 10 years because he knocked someone down and killed them.

In another film, a girl was arrested just because she was in a stolen car which showed us that even if it wasn’t you that stole the car, you can still be charged

The young people also attended a session called ‘Prison, Me? No Way’ that aimed to teach the teens about the reality of prison and James Sullivan also wrote about it – see below –

The session today was about the reality of prison and what it would be like if you were to go in prison.

We saw the clothing that you would wear and learnt about the consequences you would face if you were caught hiding something in there.

The best bit for me was a video that we watched about a lad who wanted to go out with his mate, even though his mum didn’t want him to and he ended up in prison.

The young people who are part of the MixMatch scheme have been attending various sessions recently to raise awareness of crime and the consequences.

The MixMatch scheme aims to break down any barriers between young people and uniformed services such as the West Yorkshire Police Force and West Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service which appears to be having a real positive impact within our communities.
