About the education kit

This is a legal education kit for teachers, youth workers and other educators to help young people better understand their rights when dealing with police and protective services officers (PSOs) in Victoria.

The program covers the following topics:

  • giving your name and address
  • being found drunk in public
  • orders to move on and stay away
  • weapons searches
  • searches on public transport.

The education kit is based on a series of videos that tell a real or imagined story about a young person who comes across a police officer or a PSO on the street.

The Street Law videos and teaching resources were originally produced by Youthlaw in collaboration with young people from Youthworx Media. We thank Youthlaw for allowing Victoria Legal Aid to adapt and republish those resources as part of this education kit.
