Early Intervention Engagement Team (EIET) are working closely with the Wakefield Council Youth Worker Team, 5 days a week we provide a uniformed PCSO or PC in a plain vehicle into the communities with a detached youth worker. The project works from 5pm until 9pm, targeting areas of ASB and youth crime. This project has been running since March 2020 and has engaged with over 2,000 young people across the District. The project was recently shortlisted for the Howard League Community Award for the ‘Policing & Children Category’.
Talk to the Bear:
The roll out of our ‘Talk to the Bear – Bobby Bear’ project is currently underway. This is to support the delivery of Op Encompass. Over the next couple of months PCSO Allison Bailey from the South East Cluster will be delivering our Police Bears to those primary schools which we have identified that haven’t received theirs. A link to the YouTube story will be sent to the schools which tells the story “How Do You Feel Today Baby Bear” by Jane Evans.
