Media Centre

We very much value our partnerships with the media and the important role they play in helping us to build trust and confidence in communities and to reduce crime and disorder.

We have a team of media officers, providing a service to the local, regional and national media.

If anyone has feedback about our media services and constructive suggestions on how they can be improved, please get in touch.
