To mark the start of the welcomed summer months and warmer weather, Merseyside Police is leading a new initiative to make sure that anyone who plans to visit Wirral’s open spaces, beaches and parks has a safe and enjoyable time.
This initiative, called ‘Openspace’ will see us working alongside a range of partners to prevent serious violence and anti-social behaviour in key tourist hotspot areas, concentrating on popular parks throughout the Wirral and along the coastal areas in West Kirby and New Brighton.
Merseyside Police, working together with Wirral council, Wirral Coast Guard, Wirral Park Rangers, Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service, and British Transport Police, want to ensure that people can make the most of their open spaces and the sunshine, by preventing crime and therefore increasing their safety and the quality of life.
