Young people in Becontree and have taken on police officers in a 6-a-side football tournament.

The youth charity, Future Youth Zone based in Barking and Dagenham, worked alongside police to organise the event which took place at Parsloes Park yesterday.

In total, four teams competed made up of the staff, young people and officers.

It’s hoped the tournament will allow young people to build positive relationships with officers in the area.

 

Acting Head of Youth Work, Steve Anderton said: “The event was a huge success that used a shared passion of football to provide an opportunity to bring together young people and police officers from across the borough to come together as a community and to get to know each other a little better whilst playing the beautiful game.

“The tournament allowed young people to interact with Police Officers in an informal setting removing any barriers and allowing them to meet the real people behind the uniform and likewise the opportunity for the officers to speak to young people on their terms and in their environment.

“This is crucial in building trust and forging positive relationships to help build a stronger community.

“We place great value in the relationship we have with the Local Police and are particularly grateful to the officers attending and DC Anoushka Dunic for her help in organising the event.
