Young people in Wells are being given the opportunity to have their say about the police with the force's first online youth survey.

Inspector Paul Cox said: "This survey is a chance for the young people of Somerset to log-on and tell us what they think about the police, what we do well and where they think we need to improve.

"The survey will give 13 – 19 year olds from across the force area the opportunity to make a positive difference to how we do things in the future."

The survey includes 20 questions which look at policing issues, how safe young people feel and what kind of information they would like to receive from the police.

All entrants who provide their email address will also be automatically entered into a prize draw to win a Wii or one of two iPod Shuffles.

Everyone who participates and gives the police their email address will also get a copy of a report of the results of the survey.

The survey will run until Wednesday 29 June 2011 and is open to all 13 – 19 year olds who are living in Somerset.

To complete the youth survey log on to the www.consultation.avonandsomerset.police.uk/police/20questions website.

    I think this is a noble idea, but the kids who will talk to the police are not going to be the ones causing trouble... so what's the point?!
