PRESS RELEASE

 

‘Crimebeat’ Success for Hartlepool

A group of young film makers from Seaton Carew Youth Centre have won their way through to the national finals of the annual Youth Against Crime competition.

With a £1000 prize at stake groups from across the Cleveland Police area competed to come up with the best idea to tackle crime and safety in their area. The winning team from Seaton Carew, led by 14 year old Polly Abbott, looked at the risks of underage drinking.  From their research into the subject they went on to develop a DVD that will be used in youth centres to highlight the issues and dangers.

 Presenting the winners with their prize, The High Sheriff of North Yorkshire, Richard Compton commented, ‘This award is thoroughly deserved and the judging panel were particularly impressed by the original approach to getting a difficult message across.’

 On behalf of Cleveland Police, Youth Manager, Christine Davidson said, ‘This competition is a great opportunity for young people to demonstrate that they both understand and can come up with answers to issues that concern us all.  My thanks to Safe in Tees Valley, K Home Engineering, Fairfield Industries and Tees Componentswho sponsored the event’.

 Any groups interested in entering the 2012 competition please contact Lorraine Nevison at Safe in Tees Valley on 0845 271 3883.
