New Generation Policing
Our partnerships with police services and Police and Crime Commissioners aims to develop mainstream policing approaches that respond to young adults’ needs (driven by experiences of poverty, trauma, and racism) and prevent them from being caught in the revolving door.
Our work is driven forward in the following trailblazers sites: Cleveland, Durham, Humberside, Leicestershire, North Yorkshire, South Yorkshire, and West Midlands.
Working with young adults
We are working with young adults who have lived experience of the systems we are trying to change. They will be vital in guiding, co-producing and campaigning for change. For more information contact Sean Mullen.
Leadership and Practice Exchange
We are running a series of interactive and tailored events that foster peer-to-peer learning, knowledge and practice exchange among policing professionals, third sector organisations and people with lived experience. The events are designed to support OPCCs and police services to collaborate and innovate.
As part of this, we have set up a Knowledge Exchange Network with The Police Foundation which brings together police Inspectors and Chief Inspectors from across England and Wales to co-create new and better ways of policing young adults aged 18-25. Read about our first meeting in Decemeber 2020 here.
For more information contact Burcu Borysik.
We want to thank our funders, the Barrow Cadbury Trust, the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation, and the Lloyds Bank Foundation for making this happen. Thanks also to our diverse and knowledgeable steering group members: HMI Wendy Williams (HMICFRS), Chief Constable Mark Collins (Dyfed-Powys Police), Chief Constable Andrew Rhodes (Lancashire Constabulary), Susannah Hancock (APCC), Prof. Kieran McCartan (University of West of England), Prof. Huw Williams (University of Exeter), Dr Eamonn O’Moore (Public Health England), Neena Samota (St Mary’s University), and Myron Rogers (Chair of Lankelly Chase Foundation).

Presentation from LEAD about the programme and how it works.
Revolving Doors Agency is proud to announce a strategic partnership with Public Defenders Association to promote a new approach to police-led diversion that we believe can better prevent the revolving door of crisis and crime.
Revolving Doors Agency and Public Defenders Association (the US-based penal reform charity) launches Let Everyone Advance with Dignity (LEAD), a police-led diversion approach for young adults (18-25) who are at risk of becoming trapped in the revolving door of crime and crisis.
Today, Revolving Doors publishes a review of strategies and activities led or supported by Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) to address the impact of trauma and poverty among people who are in, or at risk of entering, the revolving door.
We have a once in a generation opportunity to prevent the cycle of crisis and crime. Our strong coalition, led by Revolving Doors Agency and our Patron Lord Patel of Bradford, are committing to action that prevents young adults being pulled into the cycle of crime and crisis and diverting them away, into a better life.
Today, a strong coalition of Police and Crime Commissioners, police services and charities led by Revolving Doors Agency are calling on action to prevent young adults being pulled into the cycle of crime and crisis.
Our analysis of government data that shows Black young adults (18-24) are significantly more likely to be dragged into the criminal justice system for relatively low-level and non-violent offences, such as theft or minor drug offences. Rather than being given the support they need, they are swept away into our criminal justice system.
