A website called Safe which aims to keep youngsters safe is being launched by the Met police today (July 29)....
You are, I hope, kidding me?
The site is aimed at 11 to 16 year olds and is full of information about crime and safety issues, ranging from bullying and drugs to gangs and knife crime.Oh, just great. Not only is it a website, it's a diverse and inclusive website.
It was designed with the help of youngsters from a wide range of backgrounds.
Is there someone from the Met that can be wheeled forward to justify this vanity project with a collection of pointless buzzspeak phrases?
Why, yes, there is:
Met police spokesman Chief Superintendent Adrian Hanstock said: “Safe is a website designed in partnership with young people for young people.And you don't already have one?
“They are big users of the internet and consume a lot of information online so the Met needs a presence in that space."
