Over the summer there's also been a lot of targeted activity across our public transport, funded through my Violence Reduction Unit. This work is to support Northumbria Police and prevent crime and ASB. Ultimately, it’s about giving kids positive opportunities.
I went to South Shields Interchange the other night to find out more about the work that's been happening to engage with young people. It was great to see this youth engagement in action. Thanks to South Tyneside Council, South Tyneside Youth Service, Tyne and Wear Metro, Inspire, Edge NorthEast and all involved.
