Neighbourhood officers and partners carried out an estate walkabout in North Shields recently.
Officers from North Shields Neighbourhood Policing Team and representatives from Tyneside based social housing provider Home Group, visited residents in the St Aiden's Close area near Billy Mill.
They talked to local people about the area, offered crime prevention advice and delivered a questionnaire to find out in more detail any problems which are causing concern.
Neighbourhood Inspector Geoff Cross said: "We've been working with partners in the area to find out more about quality of life issues which affect local people. By surveying people we can find out what needs to be done and, by working together, find solutions which best meets local needs."
