Just a further update on some of the work being carried out by the Whitley Bay Neighbourhood Team. Over the past few weeks we have launched Operation Maple which is aimed at tackling crime and disorder on the coastal metro system, in partnership with Nexus. Since the operation has launched we have seen almost a 20% reduction in incidents reported. We will continue to try and decrease the incidents and we have teams out again tonight.
Please continue to report incidents to the police via 999 for emergencies, 101 or online via www.northumbria.police.uk
