Police and the Town Council, County Council Youth services, Fire Service and Council ASB officers meeting.

The Police have always received great support from our Council and partners who work hard to ensure your concerns are addressed.

I am delighted to inform you that following this meeting today our working partnership has been made even stronger.

Moving forwards as well as standard Police response to incidents, Police are sharing information about hotspots and key times with our partners. 

The motive is to ensure we have the right provisions focused and directed to the right locations and at the right times.

This includes engaging with our young people, who often wish to gather together in our outdoor settings. 

The majority cause no issues and are doing nothing wrong, there are a myriad of activities and groups in our area that our young people can become involved with, our Council are compiling a list of these and setting provisions in place to engage with and listen to our young people and mould activities and provisions according to their needs, being identified through emerging youth councils where they have their own voices and input.


The Police will deal with the minority causing issues and target them.

However the bigger picture is to divert our young people from issues that affect the community, allowing them to make the most of what we have in place. 


While we work to coordinate our efforts, our partners inform me that many incidents are reported directly to them, or through Facebook.

Simply put – if we are to coordinate effectively, we need the right information, something passed in a comment goes unreported to police.

Reports must be direct to the Police, not 3rd hand through a councillor or comments on a Facebook post.

How do I report an incident to the Northumbria Police?
