Engagement event [View Full Size]

We had a great time at Newcastle's Central Station today as we hosted a Hate Crime Awareness event in partnership with British Transport Police, Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service, Victims First Northumbria and Virgin Trains.


A number of stalls were set up to talk about Hate Crime awareness but also about recruitment for a career in the police and other volunteering opportunities.


The public had the chance to find out a little bit more about what we're doing to tackle Hate Crime and what else a career in the police entails.


Our amazing police horses were on show and were even treated to carrots, apples and a pack of polos by some kind hearted members of the public.


The Northumbria Police Dog Section also turned up with PD Odi enjoying the sights of central Newcastle. Recent star of social media, police pup Nala, also said help but was a little bit worn out after a morning of playing at home.


It comes as part of our activity for Hate Crime Awareness Week as we try to educate the public about when you should call a police and what constitutes a Hate Crime.


Visit the Northumbria Police website for more info about #NHCAW and what activity we have going on in our region. Thanks again to everyone who came and said hello!
