Child centered policing- a new Cumbria police initiative

Cumbria Police’s Child Centred Policing Teams’

‘Did You Know’ Campaign

Did you Know?

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/Sending Naked Pictures

We live in a world where living part of your life on the internet is the norm. The web is a place of considerable knowledge and development, but it can also be the root of some serious dangers.

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

Child Exploitation

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.

Consent

Sex without consent is rape and anything less than a yes is a no. 
Click here for a great way of explaining consent to people of all ages.

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.

Relationships can make people feel fantastic, supported, and loved.

YOUR OPPORTUNITY TO TELL US ABOUT EGREMONT – join our virtual workshops and have your say!

Cumbria County Council’s Copeland Area Support Team has worked with a range of local partners to create an Egremont Town Team, which includes representatives from the local community in Egremont, to develop a ‘place vision’ for Egremont. This aim of the new group is to:
 
• Attract new businesses to our town centre.
• Increase and retain our working age population.
• Raise the standard of the physical environment in our town.
• Increase the number of people living in and around Egremont.
• Deliver new jobs and opportunities for economic and social participation.
• Increase the number of visitors who spend time and money in Egremont.
 
We want to use the new place vision to build local pride and confidence in the town, and to help us further develop Egremont as we reignite our economy following the Coronavirus pandemic. We want to hear what makes you proud about Egremont, how you feel about the area and how you might like it to develop in the future.
By hosting two ‘virtual’ workshops and an online survey, we are seeking your insight, thoughts and knowledge to help shape a powerful vision for Egremont.
We will be hosting a ‘virtual’ morning workshop with residents, organisations and businesses representing the Egremont community, using the Zoom platform on May 19, 2021 09:00. Register in advance for this meeting here.
We will be also hosting a ‘virtual’ evening workshop with residents, organisations and businesses representing the Egremont community using the Zoom platform on May 18, 2021 18:00. Register in advance for this meeting here. https://us02web.zoom.us/…/tZUpf-GvrzgvEtc4jq0IUB_R8sf44…
If you would like to be involved, please register for a session and instructions on how to join the meeting, as well as further information will be sent to you.
You can also respond to an online survey to give us your feedback, which is available here. https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/EgremontVision
