Would you know what to do if a police officer ordered you to move on? What if a Protective Services Officer (PSO) asked for your name and address while you were waiting for a train? Can a ticket inspector arrest you? Can a security guard search your bag without your consent?
Streetsmart has all the legal information you need to know about police, PSOs, ticket inspectors and security guards, as well as useful tips on how to handle yourself in such circumstances.
Streetsmart is a smartphone-friendly website that explains the law in plain English.
It was developed by Youthlaw in collaboration with young people and design researchers at Paper Giant, a design consultancy based in Melbourne.
You can read Paper Giant’s 2014 research report that led to the development of the Streetsmart guide.
