A young person in Bede House Youth Adventure Project makes an observation in response to the question, “what do you think when you see a police officer?”
One person said simply, “They’re trouble.”
The young person in the recording says, “I feel like police officers have like a really negative name in society. Because a lot of people get stopped and searched and then.. but I feel like people ain’t seen what they’re really… because there ain’t as many police officers are on the streets and how much crime, how it’s rising, I just feel like people ain’t really seen the impact of what they can do.”
