Campaign Report September 2021
The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Humberside has released its latest Not In Our Community (NIOC) report that updates on local activity to raise awareness of child exploitation and grooming.
From a new hard-hitting short film, a music video, an animation for young people, an interactive ‘choose what happens next’ film, to the launch of a new interactive e-learning platform; the last 6 months have included our #5in5 campaign that saw new and fresh resource landing every week for 5 weeks.
Police and Crime Commissioner Jonathan Evison said, “My Police and Crime Plan includes a commitment to raise awareness of child exploitation and highlights that early intervention is key: stopping problems from escalating, and educating and supporting children and young people to prevent them from being drawn into criminal activity.
“With focus continuing on raising awareness directly amongst young people, we continue to do all we can to also reach out to parents, teachers and youth engagement professionals and this work will be further progressed throughout my time in office.”
In addition to a now extensive library of film resource and session plans (NIOC Connect), our e-learning platform (NIOC Interact) is unique to the Humberside Police Force area and is available free to all young people, educators and support workers. Progress can be tracked by group leaders and certificates of achievement earned on completion. (An online webinar will be held on 19 October and places can be booked by following this link

Young people can submit anonymous reports online and the site provides non-judgemental information and advice about crime and criminality specifically for young people.
