12 Victims’ Voice – Young People Findings Under-reporting - “I wouldn’t tell the police… Because I’m not a snitch. And because you know, they’re probably going to kill you if you do.” Police are intimidating - “Some of us find the police really intimidating, the whole system of reporting crime, sometimes that whole questioning thing makes you feel as if you’re being questioned. Perhaps a little bit more training needs to go into the officers who are actually asking the questions.” - “They are too busy with serious stuff.” Influence of parents - “I would have liked to go, to go to court, but my Mum wouldn’t let me” Tailored support from agencies – “Ask what the person wants from it. Just strategies, obviously it’s still happening, but I just block it out now, but they could have stopped that. I could have been, I could have just been carrying on with my life, if they’d told me from the off, ways to help me, but they didn’t.” Positive encounters with police - “Yes, because they understood how not every teenager fitted the general stereotype” These findings led to seven recommendations
