Cumbria Police’s Child Centred Policing Teams’
‘Did You Know’ Campaign
Following the success of our Child Centred Policing Team’s (CCPT) ‘Did You Know’, campaign, lots of you have asked if we could share the campaign’s content again.
The campaign provided youth-focused, educational information, guidance, and support for parents, carers, educators, and young people.
You can find highlights of the campaign’s topics and resources in this newsletter, or search #DidYouKnow on our social media accounts.
About Cumbria’s Child Centred Policing Team
The CCPT were implemented by Inspector Gemma Hannah and Detective Chief Inspector James Yallop in 2020, following extensive research into childhood offending, conducted with the support of partner constabularies.
A child centred approach to policing aims to improve the quality of policing for children by acknowledging their differences, recognising their vulnerabilities, and meeting their needs. By doing this we can prevent the unnecessary criminalisation of children, signposting them to relevant support services and providing opportunities for positive interventions.

Sexting is the sharing of explicit pictures or video through mobile phones/other devices and the internet.

Child exploitation is child abuse where children and young people are manipulated and coerced into committing crime. Children as young as 10 in Cumbria are being put in danger by criminals who take advantage of how vulnerable these young people are.

Sex without consent is rape and anything less than a yes is a no.
The more we can talk about the subject of consent, the more awareness we can raise on what it is and means and it’s importance.

Healthy and Unhealthy Relationships
Relationships can make people feel fantastic, supported, and loved.
Understanding the signs of an unhealthy relationship, could help with identifying that you or a friend or loved one is at risk of harm.

Understanding the law and the consequences of criminal behaviour, is vital for us to make an informed decision as to our actions.
