It's good to know - phase 2
"It's good to know we're working together"
The public are the stars of an ongoing Northumbria Police campaign highlighting the work going on in neighbourhoods to address community concerns.
The second phase of the forcewide "It's good to know" campaign aims to further improve trust and confidence in the police by showing communities what's been happening in their areas to tackle their concerns.
Business people, youth groups and community stalwarts all appear in the latest campaign showing how police and partners are working together to improve communities.
Although crime levels are continuing to go down, police realise there are still issues which can affect people's quality of life - mainly youth anti-social behaviour and inconsiderate motorists.
In recent months officers have made a real push to link in with schools, councils and youth groups to support young people and find them activities to do out of school hours. This has the twin benefits of improving their self-respect and confidence and diverting them from disorder.
During the next ten weeks Neighbourhood Policing Teams will be holding special 'meet the public' events across the force area to tell people about the work that's been going on in their particular community and answer any queries they may have.
