Sandwell’s New Youth Commissioners

Well done to both Ayyatulahi & Maria, Sandwell’s new Police Crime Commissioners.

The election took place over a two-week period, with more than 1,000 votes cast in an online ballot, by under 18s across the region.

The Youth Commissioners will advise the Police and Crime Commissioner on law and order issues, affecting children and teenagers. They will also be asked to represent the views and stand up for the rights of young people within the police force area.

Ayyatulahi, said: “I just wanted to say thank you so much for everyone who supported me and I cannot wait to make an impact on society, together with all the other Youth Commissioners. To every young person in Sandwell, I am here to represent you and my ultimate aim is to make you all feel heard, safe and welcome.”

on the behalf of all of Sandwell we are so proud of you both!
