OPCC and Northumbria Police launch children’s Christmas campaign

This Christmas, together with Commissioner Dame Vera Baird, we’re urging parents to equip their kids with cyber sense before they unwrap their new phones, consoles and tablets this Christmas. With almost four in five 12 to 15 year olds and one in three 8 to 11 year olds owning a mobile phone, it's essential that we invest time in educating kids.
