National Volunteers Week – Join West Yorkshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner’s Youth Advisory Group (1 June 2016)

YAGTo mark National Volunteers Week, West Yorkshire's Police and Crime Commissioner, Mark Burns-Williamson is looking for volunteers to join his Youth Advisory Group (YAG).

National Volunteers Week is an annual celebration of the fantastic contribution that volunteers make across the UK and to help celebrate, Mark is looking for motivated, community focused young people between the ages of 13 and 21 to join his group.

The YAG core function is to steer all future decisions, policy and engagement with young people. The group is now in its third year, and most recently helped shape the current Police and Crime Plan consultation, 'Your Priorities, Your Plan'.

The youth group meets throughout the year and also takes part in visits to various West Yorkshire Police departments, including the state of the art training facility at Carr Gate, to get a full understanding of the police service.

Members also have the opportunity to feedback on work outside of meetings and can contact the Office the Police and Crime Commissioner at any time.

Mark Burns-Williamson said "The group gives young people a fantastic opportunity to have a real voice and speak both directly to me and West Yorkshire Police's Chief Officer Team.

"They have proved themselves invaluable and I am very grateful to each member for the time they give up to be part of the group."
