Check It Out is a website for young people to use to gain information and make informed decisions about their lives, if they find themselves in a troubling situation – or if they are trying to help a friend – or if they just want to know more about a certain subject. There are key police messages on the site from safe strangers (primary age) to grooming and healthy relationships for secondary age students. The right information to make the right choice.

Remember that you can report crime anonymously through Fearless.

The contents have been arranged into age-appropriate groups – please explore using the links below.
