NICCY has eight High Level Corporate Objectives (HLCO) and under number Six we are working on the following:

Through our work in youth justice and policing, we will strive to ensure that the rights and best interests of children and young people who come into contact with these agencies are always protected.  We will do so by providing advice, in respect of youth justice and policing, to government and the appropriate agencies, and by monitoring how engagement with young people and children is conducted.
