GMP asks young people to stay Safe4Summer
Our partners Greater Manchester Police and the Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service have partnered with the Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) and Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) to tackle youth anti-social behaviour and offer young people a programme of events to ensure that everyone has a safe and enjoyable summer.
During the long summer break there is temptation for young people to get involved in activities that may seem like harmless fun but can be seen differently by other people or carry serious consequences if things get out of hand.
In addition to offering advice to young people, GMP are urging the community to help make their local area a safer and more enjoyable place to live. Parents and guardians are advised to maintain a line of communication when their children are out and about and talk to them about personal safety and the dangers of issues such as underage drinking.
The wider community are asked to be proactive in reporting any instances of anti-social behaviour to police on 101 or via the new live chat function on the GMP website.
