As part of our role in harm reduction, the West Mercia Police North Worcs youth engagement team talk and interact with many groups of young people from all age groups.

Drug and alcohol misuse amongst young people is actually falling. However, its important that young people have knowledge to make informed decisions around risk factors and risky behaviour.

We’ll discuss criminal law, alcohol, illegal drugs and the consequences of being in possession of them. But its also important to talk about the dangers involved, including health risks.

There’s also lots of confusion and myths around certain new drugs, such as those termed as “legal highs”. Our aim is to pass on our experiences and knowledge so that young people can make correct choices.
