New way to have a say

NORTHUMBRIA Police is giving residents a new way to talk to officers about local issues.

Talk Forums have been set up for each sector across the force, which allow online conversations between police and the public.

Neighbourhood inspectors have already started posts and people are encouraged to take a look and join in the debate.

Residents can sign up to their local Talk Forum by visiting and they are then free to browse discussions and topics for their area and get involved in the conversation.
