Syed Naqvi and Melvin Riley (both year 12) were elected on Monday as Wolverhampton Police Youth Commissioners.

They will advise the Police and Crime Commissioner on law and order issues affecting children and teenagers. They will also be asked to represent the views and stand up for the rights of young people within the police force area.

As well as speaking directly to the PCC they will liaise with police officers, decision makers and youth organisations about crime, justice and victim services.

They will also be asked to challenge the force when it fails to live up to expectations. They will be asked to consult young people on the PCC’s Police and Crime Plan, liaise with other teenagers and children and build relationships with the police.

Please congratulate Syed and Melvin when you see them as this is such a fantastic opportunity.   We are so lucky to have BOTH students elected as Commissioners.
