Community Ambassadors...

This month, the Ambassadors have attended our final summer event of 2018, supported the night time economy with knowing what to do if someone was attacked with a knife or acid, attended police station open days, met with community groups to discuss speeding concerns and dropped in on youth groups, helping them to identify different activities they can get involved in to give them focus.
