Trainee police officers will ran 161 miles to raise money for the White Ribbon Campaign.The off-duty officers will take part in the sponsored run at Redcar boating lake tomorrow, Friday 18th March.

The White Ribbon Campaign is a charity which raises awareness and lobbies against violence and domestic abuse.

The officers will have a big day ahead of them as they run seven miles each on the morning and then prepare to be attested at a ceremony in the evening, having completed a training programme lasting almost six months. 

161 miles equates to 701 laps of the lake, which represents the number of people convicted for domestic abuse offences in Cleveland in 2013/14.

Temporary Chief Constable, Iain Spittal, said: “I am really proud that we have officers and staff at Cleveland Police who do selfless things such as running 161 miles to raise money for the White Ribbon Campaign. 

“There is no justification for domestic abuse and it’s great that whilst generating money for the charity these officers are also able to raise awareness at the same time.”

Police and Crime Commissioner for Cleveland, Barry Coppinger, said: “Part of my ongoing Violence Against Women and Girls Strategy is about raising awareness of domestic abuse and encouraging victims to come forward and report such incidents to police.

“By participating in this event, these officers are helping to do just that and I’d like to commend them and wish them luck in their future careers at Cleveland Police.”

Councillor Lynn Pallister, Cabinet Member for Health & Housing, said: “The White Ribbon Campaign is a great initiative to raise awareness of domestic abuse and the role men can play in putting a stop to it. Sadly, too many people are subject to domestic abuse, but with fundraising efforts like these we can work towards putting an end to violence against women. 

“I send the best of luck to the trainee officers taking part in the sponsored run and thank them for making a stand and spreading the message that domestic violence is not acceptable.”
