Young people in London could be able to rate their contact with the local Metropolitan Police via text messaging.  The project has been developed following discussions with young people and is likely to be trialled in three London areas from September.

The idea of the pilot is being explored by the Met in consultation with groups, including the UK Youth Parliament, as part of an initiative to improve its relationship with young people.
