Working to keep Amble safe with town engagement day
14 Mar 2023
People living, working or visiting Amble are being encouraged to share any concerns they may have regarding anti-social behaviour in and around the town at a community engagement day on Wednesday 22nd March.
Northumberland County Council is working with other Safer Northumberland Partnership members including Northumbria Police to ensure that the safety and protection of communities across Northumberland is a priority.
Over the course of the day officers from Northumberland County Council’s community safety and housing teams, along with officers from Northumbria Police will be carrying out high visibility patrols in the area from 10.30am.
Afterwards, the officers will be at the Library on Middleton Street, Amble between 1.30pm and 3.30pm where residents will be able to speak to them in the strictest confidence.
Northumberland County Councillor, Colin Horncastle, cabinet member for community services said “If you spot the officers around, please feel free to say hello. They are there to listen.
“Amble is a beautiful town, and we want to ensure the quality of life there is continually improved. The community engagement day is an opportunity for us to emphasise how important it is that people come forward with information about what is going on in the community. It really does help us, and we do act on information given to us.”
