Every year lives on Merseyside are sadly affected by criminal activity. ‘Our Merseyside’ is the home of advice and information to help keep our communities and our streets safe.

We hope that by raising awareness of different types of crime across our region, highlighting the devastating consequences they can have on people’s lives and providing relevant advice and guidance, we can deter people from criminality and provide the necessary help and support to overcome it.
