An opportunity to meet Northumbria Police…
August 24, 2021
Northumbria Police community engagement van was present in town yesterday following an invitation from Cramlington Town Council Community and Youth team – and the police presence was well received by local families who stopped to have a chat with the officers.
Northumbria Police cadets Candice, Byron, Lauren and Abi were also on hand to ‘fingerprint’ some of the youngsters and as can be seen here little superhero Joshua and his mum Laura gave the ‘thumbs up’ to them, Sgt Stacey Ehala and acting Sgt Jordan McCandless.
Cramlington Town Mayor Loraine De Simone met Neighbourhood Policing Inspector Jonathan Caisley and commented “It’s great to see the police engaging with the community and especially our younger residents. The police cadets are very smart and engaging – if they are examples of possible members of the police force to come, all looks well for the future.
Councillor Christine Dunbar took a trip down memory lane when she visited the van – as a former police officer herself it brought back happy memories of her time in the force. She said ” Although the role of a police officer is continually evolving the core principal of serving the community remains and it is great to see in in action here.”
