Running For Cops 

Julia Berry a custody Designated Detention Officer and ex-special constable wanted to raise money for her fellow injured colleagues to get the help and the support they need to facilitate getting them back on the road to recovery.

Jules said, “Far too often we overlook colleagues who are long-term injured or sick it’s easy to forget as the day to day hectic shift work lifestyle we all lead distracts us from absent colleagues especially if they are off for a long time.”

Having already run the Brighton and Manchester Marathon Julia will be running Cops 30 2nd September miler than the following week, The Great North Run on the 10th September and then the Birmingham International Marath on the 15th October.

How did the idea come about?

The idea of PC Edward Walker was that of Julia Berry @DDOJB07 a Detention officer with the Met Police and Police Hour @PoliceHour.

Police Hour editor said “Jules an keen runner is Traveling to the North East and was looking for a creative way to fundraise to support UK Cops and the support of Police Hour to get the idea off the ground”

“As a team, we acted quickly and put a plan in place to get PC Edward Walker on his travels. We were delighted that Durham Police wanted to support PC Edward Walker on his tour to help raise some money for the UK Cops Charity”

North East hit by a blanket of snow many major routes covered



Motorists are bring urged to take extra care across the North East as many major routes have been covered.

Heavy snow fall and strong winds have left the A1, A19, A66 & A1M covered in snow.

While many major routes in towns and cities have also been covered leaving many roads difficult to navigate.

Gritting across many areas has failed as the snow has created air pockets allowing the snow to rest on top.

Snow began falling at 11pm last night and is expected to continue until 9am this morning.

A number of schools, colleges and Universities are expected to announce they could be closed for the day. Make sure you check ahead before traveling.

Tweet your snow pictures @PoliceHour or add them to the comments section on Police Hour Facebook page.
