On 25 June 2013, John Dwyer Police & Crime Commissioner for Cheshire, announced Dominic Rogers as his newly appointed Youth Ambassador.
John said: "23% of the population of Cheshire are under 18, and I don’t want young people to be excluded from influencing the development of the police service. I’ve appointed Dominic to work with young people and give them a voice so they can talk about their needs and experiences and help me to shape my decisions."
Dominic started his role on 15 July, and has already met with a variety of people including; schools liaison officers who work across the county, as well as people from agencies such as the Youth Offending Team.
Dominic has recorded a video introducing himself to the young people in Cheshire. Dom said: "I’m going to spend the next couple of months going around the county and introducing myself to people face-to-face, but I thought this was a quick way to let young people know that I’m here.
By introducing myself it allows me to ask the young people for their opinions, and give them the opportunity to ask me questions or tell me any issues they may have."
The introductory video can be found on the Police & Crime Commissioner’s website www.cheshire-pcc.gov.uk. Alternatively advice and information aimed at young people can be found on www.Upbeat.uk.com.
