A mobile app, designed to teach young people how to keep safe on the internet and on the streets has been launched with the support of West Mercia Police and Crime Commissioner John Campion.
Young people can often face tough decisions and situations as they’re growing up. Be it trying to decide between right and wrong in order to fit in with their peers, or finding they’re the subject of someone’s taunts – making them a victim of crime and unsure what to do about it and who… to turn to.
The app features a number of video scenarios where the user has to make a choice about what they would do if they found themselves in that situation – which influences how the story ends. The app covers five key themes: bullying; healthy relationships; anti-social behaviour; hate crime; and theft.
The FREE app “Choices: be safe, be aware” can be downloaded from the app store.
