The road of crime can be long and dangerous – and much of the time, it’s difficult to improve on your situation.
When young offenders reach the age of 18, all of the Metropolitan Police’s “young offenders” programmes and relevant rehabilitation programmes are no longer accessible to them – instead they are offered adult programmes which may not be suitable to their situation.
It is believed that, as a result of this, currently, 30% of young offenders in England and Wales reoffend.
At Brixton Police Station, they are trying to change this.
Divert is a programme run by Insp. Jack Rowlands and is designed to help young people find training, work and work experience after they’ve been arrested and divert them from a dangerous path which too many have walked before.
