National Evaluation of the Mini-Police: Exploring Children’s Experiences, Adults’ Views and Strategic Progress

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned Report

Abstract

This report provides findings and results from a national evaluation of the mini-police in England and Wales. The mini-police is an innovative police engagement programme aimed at 8-11 year olds. Originally conceived in Durham, the aim was to provide a fun and interactive way ‘to introduce children to a positive experience of policing and to get them involved in the local community’. Inspired by the Durham model, several forces have launched their own programmes, each with unique aims, programme designs and selection processes.
