Prison! Me! No Way!!! Exposing the Lies About Highs

Prison! Me! No Way!!! Jersey celebrated their tenth anniversary last month and showcased the latest Prison! Me! No Way!!! Jersey initiative, involving four young people from the St. Brelade Youth Project, who worked with officers from the team in order to create a storyline and produce their own film/documentary about ‘so called’ legal highs.

The four young people are: Lucy Bevis, Imogen Taylor, Charlie Nichols and Nathan Fogg and their film is entitled ‘Exposing the lies about highs’

Viewers are taken on their journey, which includes talking to experts and other young people exploring and dispelling some of the myths that surround these substances and the devastating effects that they can have.

The film will be used by the Prison! Me! No Way!!! Jersey team to support the work they undertake in schools on ‘so called’ legal highs as well as social media.

Prison! Me! No Way!!! Jersey Chairman Lesley Harrison said:

“Low levels of crimedon’t happen by accident, but by a community working together. Education and early intervention are key to ensure that our young people can make positive and informed life style choices. As a partnership we have enjoyed tremendous achievements over the past ten years, and the latest initiative- a film created by four young people in Jersey who want to ‘Expose the lies on highs’ is an extremely exciting one, and one that we believe will impact on many young people”

Superintendent Rob Bastable from the States of Jersey Police said:

“The States of Jersey Police is very proud of its involvement with PMNW over the last 10 years. It is a fine example of how the community works together to inform and educate its young people in making the right life choices. PMNW has played a significant part in achieving very low levels of youth crime in Jersey and making sure that Jersey remains a safe place to live and visit.”

Prison! Me! No Way!!! was launched in Hull in 1993 and was first introduced to Jersey in 2002 and was registered as a charity in 2005. The scheme is a joint initiative led by States of Jersey Police and Prison Officers who use a multi agency approach with the States of Jersey Fire and Rescue and Ambulance Services, to demonstrate to young people the consequences of their actions and what could potentially happen to them if they choose a life of crime.

In 2014, almost 11,000 young people in Jersey took part in a Prison! Me! No Way!!! Jersey lesson or programme and the charity currently has a partnership agreement with the States of Jersey Home Affairs Department, along with the States of Jersey Police, States of Jersey Prison, Fire and Rescue, and Ambulance Service.
