National Crimebeat focuses on providing a prestigious annual awards ceremony to give recognition to the most innovative and successful crime prevention projects carried out by young people.
The High Sheriff for West Sussex recently nominated the Youth Cabinet for the National Crimebeat Awards for their work on their ‘Tackling Knife Crime’ campaign.
During this campaign the cabinet worked with the WSCC graphics team, as well as Miles Ockwell (Sussex Police) and Paul Wagstaff (Director or Education for West Sussex), to produce a set of 4 posters for schools and other organisations aimed at deterring young people from knife crime.
Confirmation was sent to them on Friday that they are now in the final 3 and will be attending a virtual ceremony in March to find out if they have won the award. No matter what the outcome is, these young people have produced some high quality work and we at West Sussex are very proud of them all.
