Surrey's 'Total Respect' Initiative Wins First Prize at National Crimebeat Awards!

And not only that, our terrific team of young people also won the Burnett Award for Best Presentation on the day! The initiative was created by the amazing Tamara Cooper (third right), Public Protection Strategic Manager at Surrey Police, but led and implemented by our very own wonderful young people using their own experience of life in the care system. Over 500 police officers across Surrey have now experienced the programme and the impact has been astonishing. This is a great example of partnership working between the young people themselves, experts within Surrey County Council and Surrey Police – as was greatly appreciated by all distinguished guests present to cheer the Surrey team on!
