In December 2017 North Yorkshire Police (NYP) began a five-month communications campaign entitled ‘NO HOME HERE’ which was seeking to help protect vulnerable victims of crime.
Throughout December the campaign focused on domestic abuse, and in January moved to child neglect.
The campaign continues to receive a good level of support from both the media and the public.
The January child neglect Facebook posts reached over 100,000 people and NYP received numerous likes and re-tweets of their Twitter posts. The campaign also achieved a good level of media coverage in titles such as the Yorkshire Post, Northern Echo, York Press, Craven Herald, Ripon Gazette, Harrogate Advertiser and Wetherby News.
As mentioned the campaign will run until April 2018, with a different focus each month and February sees attention turning to stalking and harassment.
Starting from Monday 5 February 2018 and continuing throughout the month, NYP will be issuing press releases and posting via their website and social media accounts to raise awareness of stalking and harassment, the fact that these behaviours are recognised as a crime and the steps that a victim can take - ultimately with the call to action to make a report to the police.
