Norfolk Constabulary: Police and community 'Stand Together'

Norfolk Constabulary: Police And Community 'Stand Together'16 December 2015

Norfolk Constabulary remains committed to supporting a national campaign aimed at promoting trust, integration and cohesion within communities.

The We Stand Together was launched earlier this year by the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) now known as the National Police Chief s Council (NPCC).

Since then police forces across the UK have been organising events in a bid to promote the “We Stand Together message.

The latest event in Norfolk is due to take place at New Routes, based at Norwich Social Centre in St Augustine s Street, Norwich at 2pm on Saturday 19 December 2015.

Abraham Eshetu, Diversity Manager for Norfolk Constabulary, said: “Norfolk has a long and proud tradition of celebrating differences, which we should be immensely proud of.

“Following the attacks in Paris and other parts of the world it is even more important that we send out a strong, unified message.

“We all have a responsibility to encourage community cohesion and I am calling on people to stand together against hatred and intolerance and show their support for each other.

The event – which is open to all – is being organised in partnership with New Routes, Norwich Mind and the Widows and Orphans Relief and Development Trust (WORD).

Norfolk s head of Community Safety and Diversity, Chief Inspector Dave Buckley, added:

“We are rightly proud to live in a diverse and thriving county where people respect and tolerate each other.”

“Now, it is more important than ever for our communities to show the world that we are continuing to stand together, despite the troubling times we are living through, and demonstrate that hatred and intolerance have no place in Norfolk.”

Police and community leaders are urging members of the public to continue to use social media to spread the message using the hashtag #WeStandTogether
