Gloucestershire Constabulary's Youth Advisory Group (YAG) exists as an open and safe environment for young people to provide honest, constructive feedback about policing matters and approaches within the county.
Its primary aim is to understand the issues that young people are facing, and for the Constabulary to listen to their suggestions, and understand how we can develop and improve the policing service we offer to the public.
As a member of the YAG, you’ll be a critical friend to the Constabulary.
Each month, a new topic is discussed within the group where you’ll have the opportunity to provide your thoughts, experiences and recommendations for improvement. You will work within a group of individuals as well as with Police Officers and Police Staff.
The YAG meet once a month on a Tuesday evening from 6:30pm to 8:30pm at our Police Headquarters, Waterwells, Quedgeley, GL2 2AN. Please note that you will need to make your own arrangements for travel to and from the meetings.
The Youth Advisory Group is suitable for people aged 14 to 24 years. The opportunity is open to anyone of the eligible age, regardless of your background, education or employment status.
You should be someone who is confident in conveying your views on key policing matters in a group setting. You’ll recognise that your contributions to these discussions are key to the approach and progression of policing within Gloucestershire. You’ll be someone who is approachable and who is comfortable working in a team; willing to challenge current processes and perceptions, and in turn, provide valuable proposals and solutions to key issues.
Overall, you should have real passion for wanting to make a difference in your local community.
To apply to become a member of the Youth Advisory Group, you will first need to submit an expression of interest form.
You will then receive an email to discuss the next steps. If successful, you will be invited to join us at our Police Headquarters for an informal chat about the role. This will be your opportunity to show us how you are able to contribute to the Youth Advisory Group.
Those who are successful at this stage will then be invited to join the Youth Advisory Group.
Please note that applicants should currently reside within the county.
Our Youth Advisory Group recruitment is now closed.
Any future recruitments will be added to this page in due course.
