PCC Barry Coppinger with pupils from English Martyrs School in Hartlepool
Let’s keep it clean---that was one of the messages backed by Police and Crime Commissioner Barry Coppinger as he joined with pupils from English Martyrs School for the annual Hartlepool ASBAD week aimed at increasing awareness amongst young people of what constitutes anti-social behaviour and the potential consequences for those affected by it…and those who carry it out.
ASBAD—it stands for Anti-Social Behaviour Awareness Day—has been run by the Safer Hartlepool Partnership since 2005 and involves a wide range of agencies who organise a series of interactive scenarios for all the mainstream secondary schools in the town.
Said Barry Coppinger “I was very impressed both by the efforts of the Community Safety Team and the many organisations involved…and also the enthusiasm of the young people.
“The week is aimed specifically at Year 8 pupils and hopes to influence them at a crucial stage in their lives, helping to show them the importance of thinking before acting and taking responsibility for their actions.”
