Have you heard about Northumbria Police’s new app, Northumbria Connected?
This is a new service set up by Northumbria Police. The idea behind it is to keep residents up to date with what the Police are doing about issues that affect you. For example, if you are concerned about Motor Cycle disorder or anti-social behaviour, you can sign up to this service and each time the police either prosecute people, close houses or seize bikes, you will be informed.
You can chose to only hear about crimes occurring on the streets near your house or post code so you won’t be bombarded with information about other areas in South Tyneside.
You will be asked to fill out a short survey which will help get a better understanding of issues affecting your community.
This service is not for reporting crime in your community, it is a way for the police to inform the community about the ongoing criminal activity in the area.
