Collateral Damage

Collateral Damage

By Jo Tilley-Riley , November 2016

This inquiry focuses on the impact on children and siblings in England who have witnessed a home raid by the police. Its purpose is to inform police, policy makers and those concerned with the welfare of children. 

The key points that have emerged during the course of this project are:

  • Innocent children and young people who witness a home raid are likely to be traumatised by the incident, and develop strong negative views of the police.
  • Possibly as many as 80,000 children experience this each year. But the exact scale of the issue is still unknown.

The recommended next steps are:

1. Identifying the scale
2. Research to identify what would make a difference
3. Programme to support youth advocates
4. Training for police

Jo Tilley-Riley developed this research as part of her Clore Social Leadership fellowship. You can download the full report here.
