Pledge of support for residents

NEIGHBOURHOOD police and partner agencies reached out to residents in a successful joint event.

Officers worked with local councillors, council departments and Housing Hartlepool showed their support against anti-social behaviour and crime issues in the Oxford Road area of Hartlepool.

Police said the initiative, part of Operation Pledge, shows residents that they and other agencies, will take on board their concerns and take action.

A police command vehicle was parked at the junction of Shakespeare Avenue and Oxford Road all day with staff from a number of partner agencies on hand to speak to residents.
