Raising Teens: Lola talks lockdown policing

Our teen reporter, Lola Ray, interviewed PC Roisin Vafaee from Sussex Police about how they are adapting to policing in lockdown. PC Vafaee is working as a children and young person’s adviser during the coronavirus lockdown.

Lola and PC Vafaee discussed why it’s so important for young people to understand the full impact of COVID 19.

We have heard from many parents worried about their teens breaking the lockdown rules. As the stay at home mandate looks set to continue for the foreseeable future, it’s imperative that we help young people understand why they need to comply.

If you’re worried about your young person, you can join us on our Facebook page, Raising Teens in Lockdown, where you’ll get support from our team, other parents, and experts.

Sussex Police are happy to answer any questions you have. They are working to support parents, carers and teens and help keep us safe during lockdown.
