Safety advice

We prevent incidents from happening through community engagement, advice and intervention.

Our aim is to make people safer in their homes and on the roads. With two rivers and the coast nearby, water safety is also important for the residents of Tyne and Wear.

We attend events and run campaigns throughout the year to share our safety messages and tackle anti-social behaviour. We help schools and community groups too.

We also work with partners to deliver training courses for businesses.
