User Voice - Only Offenders Can Stop Re-Offending

E-Petition: Introduce Cameras with Sound Recordings into all Youth Custodial and Police Settings

A group of young people in association with the Children's Rights Alliance for England and User Voice are campaigning to stop violence against children and young people in police and custodial settings.

Further to the recommendations in the recent report, Ending Violence against Children in Custody, a petition has been started which aims to introduce cameras with sound recording into all youth custodial and police settings.

If this petition gets 100,000 signatures then it will have to be considered for debate in the House of Commons.

Please help to spread the word and get as many signatures as possible!


Earlier this year, Bob Ashford was barred from running in the election to become a Police & Crime Commissioner (PCC). You can read more about this here.

Since then, Bob has launched WipeTheSlateClean, a non-political campaign.

One of the campaign's aims to reduce the scope of Criminal Records Bureau checks to ensure that a criminal record does not mean a sentence for life.
