“A safe and effective transport network is key to the development and achievement of a strong and prosperous economy. The West Midlands has benefitted from investment in areas of safety and security, which has led to significant reductions in crime. However with young people disproportionately represented as both perpetrators and victims of crime on public transport, as well as being the cohort with greatest fear, educating young people not only how to act appropriately but also to travel safely, is essential.” Mark Babington Safer Travel Manager
"The focus of this website is prevention and safety. It will be a very useful tool for teachers and partners to work with young people in reducing the likelihood of them engaging in or becoming victims of crime or anti - social behaviour." Tom Dobrovic Police Sergeant, Communities & Partnerships
