This DVD thus aims to promote and develop a young person's ability to empathise, in order to challenge anti-social behaviour and crime.
This 35 minute film highlights for young people the consequences of the choices that they may take during their teenage years and the lifestyle they choose. There are 2 threads running through the film giving rise to 2 endings.
In the first part, irresponsible choices lead to criminal behaviour and very serious consequences. In the second part, an alternative and positive response to teenage pressures leads to a successful outcome for the young people and their families. This film raises young people's awareness of Crimestoppers and to encourage them to use this service rather than be a bystander in crime or be on the periphery of potential danger.

ACC Peter Goodman, Derbyshire Constabulary.
I attended the launch of 'Between You and Me' knowing little of it or what to expect. By the end of the viewing and the discussion that followed, I was convinced of its worth. The film presents some powerful messages addressing very real issues. It will challenge your emotions, but more important, it will provide a challenge to young people in the critical choices that they have to make. Using the helpful guidance notes, this DVD can be of tremendous value in any school or youth group.
The DVD was developed from the experience of real life situations in the Derbyshire Police Force and young people they worked with. It was developed with colleagues from the city's Children and Young People's Service with the aim of showing the impact of the choices that young people make. It is hard-hitting but real. It will repay investment in it many times over.
