Youth Justice Board for England & Wales (YJB) Chair Keith Fraser has spent much of how working life trying to stop young people getting into trouble – and dealing with the aftermath when they do. He spent over 30 years in the police – first at the Met and then in the West Midlands where, as a superintendent, he became one of the most senior Black officers in the country.

Keith was behind an innovative, prevention-based approach to tackling gang crime and has used his experience at the Youth Justice Board of England & Wales, after taking over as Chair in April 2020. He is also involved in the inaugural ‘Inspire Justice Awards’ which are designed to celebrate the contribution of criminal justice support workers, such as call handlers, data analysts and training staff.
