Youth workers in Leicestershire and Rutland are being urged to ensure young people in the county become ‘Fearless’ in the fight against crime with the launch of a local training event.

The event, to be held at Thurnby Lodge on Friday 14 November 2014, is aimed at those working with young people including police officers, teachers, voluntary organisations and Safer Neighbourhood teams. The training will discuss Fearless key messages, how Fearless can benefit work with young people and ways of talking to young people about crime.

Launched nationally in April 2010, Fearless.org is run by our youth team. The Fearless website provides young people with information about the types of crime that are common to them, and gives them the opportunity to pass on information about crime 100 per cent anonymously.
