We Ain’t the Same

We Ain’t the Same is a podcast created by teens that explores the relationship between young people and police. 

This podcast was created by young people working with the Trust for Developing Communities, a Brighton and Hove-based charity working for a healthier, more inclusive, resilient Brighton & Hove. The podcast was developed in partnership with Make (Good) Trouble, a social enterprise that works with young people to give them a voice through digital media.

Supported by the Sussex Violence Reduction Partnership


Podcast One: Sergeant Emma Holliday

We interview Sergeant Emma Holliday from Sussex Police about how the police are trained and recruited today and what they do to engage positively with young people. 

“There are times when you have to call the police and it’s usually on the worst day of your life.  

It really is important that members of the public look at the police force and go, I see myself in the police force”
