MP for Redcar, Anna Turley, has warned the government that cuts to neighbourhood policing are pushing scared and angry residents towards private protection firms.

Anna says our area has seen an 18% increase in crime since 2010.

She says that over the same period, the force has had its government grant cut by £40 million which has led to the loss of over 500 officers on our streets.

Anna says rising crime is driving some residents in Redcar & Cleveland to companies offering private security patrols.

She has now repeated the call she made to the Prime Minister last month to restore funding for neighbourhood policing to make our areas streets safe again.

 

A pupil from Middlesbrough has been given the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take part in a swimming lesson alongside his classmates delivered by four-time Olympic medalist, Rebecca Adlington.

Everyone Active supported Swim England’s national Big School Swim campaign, by joining forces with Rebecca Adlington SwimStars to invite primary schools from across the country to submit an original design for their very own swim hat.

Eight year old Ameer Akhtar, who attends St Edward’s Primary School, had his winning entry hand-picked by Rebecca and presented to him alongside his classmates at a school assembly.

Rebecca said that the competition received so many exceptional entries, but Ameer’s really stood out.

It was so much fun to join Ameer and his friends for the swimming lesson in the pool at Eston Leisure Centre.

 

Cleveland Police are on the lookout for new officers to join their ranks as Police Community Support Officers.

The applications process begins on 9th May and will close after three weeks.

PCSOs were last recruited in June 2017, and the successful candidates are now out supporting communities across our area.

PCSOs work alongside regular police officers and act as a visible point of contact for local residents across the Force area.

Amongst their duties they are expected to take part in high visibility reassurance patrols, engage with children and young people, conduct door to door enquiries in major crimes, and attend community meetings.

Those candidates who are successful in the initial stages of application will be invited to an assessment centre where they will be asked to complete written tasks and take part in interactive role play exercises.
