Hampshire Police and Crime Commissioner pushes to reduce reoffending for 18 to 25 year-olds.

The new project, RESET, will allow for 18 to 25 year-olds that have been arrested to choose a RESET navigator.

The navigator will then meet with them privately and carry out what they call a 'trauma-informed assessment'.

Police and Crime Commissioner, Donna Jones, said: “We all make decisions about the direction our lives are going in, and young adulthood can be a particularly challenging period. Often, young people involved in the criminal justice system have suffered traumatic experiences in their childhood.

“RESET gives young people in police custody the vital support and continuity they need to step away from criminality and reset, rebuild and redirect their lives.

“Not only will the scheme tackle reoffending rates, but it will also reduce the demand on policing, probation and other public services, as well as helping young people get the right support to be able to live happier and crime-free lives.”
