Safer Summer video urges people to consider their actionsPublished Friday 11 August 2017
As part of this year’s Safer Summer campaign a video has been launched to remind people to respect and tolerate those around them.
The new short video featuring Marianne Hooper, Leicestershire Police’s anti-social behaviour lead, aims to encourage people to have an enjoyable summer while being aware of how their actions can impact others. It is available to view at www.leicestershire.gov.uk/safer-summer
Ivan Ould, Leicestershire County Council’s cabinet member for safer communities, said: “In the summer months it is important to be tolerant towards the occasional BBQ or party. However, it is a two-way street, and if you’re having a party it is important to be considerate and let your neighbours know too. If you feel it necessary to report anti-social behaviour to the police, you can call 101, or your local district or borough council who will be able to advise you on the next steps.”
The campaign is part of joint initiative by the Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland Anti-social Behaviour Delivery Group which includes partners such as local councils, Leicestershire Police and Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service.
Marianne Hooper, Leicestershire Police’s anti-social behaviour lead, added: “During the summer months people take the opportunity to wind down, relax and take time out to spend with their family and friends. We would like everyone to think about their own actions and the consequences, and the impact that it may have on others. We want everyone to enjoy their summer and by following the Safer Summer advice we hope that everyone’s summer will be safe and happy.”
