Welcome to the Child Centred Policing learning module for Exeter, East and Mid Devon. In this short course, we will cover the following:

  • The role of the Youth Engagement officer

  • The role of the Youth Intervention officer

  • The Youth Intervention clinic and Form 370

  • The role of the Youth Justice Service seconded police officers

Our Vision: A youth justice system that sees children as children, treats them fairly and helps them to build on their strengths so they can make a constructive contribution to society. This will prevent offending and create safer communities with fewer victims

Youth Justice Board (‘child first’ approach)

We will ensure our staff adopt a trauma informed approach, understand early intervention will have a significant impact and work with partners to reduce criminalisation of young people. Where circumstances dictate and arrest is justifiable, we will do that in a trauma informed way
