With the warm weather it is great to see the open spaces being used by more people.
The Neighbourhood Policing Teams patrol local parks and sports fields on a regular basis. This often forms part of daily patrols by the team. Whilst patrolling they look for and will deal with any anti-social behaviour or suspicious behaviour. If you see us on patrol come and say hello.
North Tyneside Councils Community Protection Team also patrol these areas. We work in partnership to look at try and prevent issues occurring and deal with them as swiftly as we can when they do occur but can’t be everywhere all the time. We do however follow up incidents that are reported and where there are concerns investigate further.
We would like to reassure the local community to report any suspicious behaviour and activity by contacting 101, via web submission https://beta.northumbria.police.uk or by contacting via crime stoppers on 0800 555 111. This can be done anonymously.
