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.

Help support the family of Three young children who have tragically lost their mum

Published

on

Police Hour is looking to help support the family of Kelly Franklin who was murdered in Hartlepool, Having personally known Kelly as a wonderful person we would like to raise some money to help support her children.

It was very tragic and saddening that we reported the murder of Kelly, but to find out within hours this was the Kelly we knew, the Kelly that had a heart of gold and the Kelly that ensured other peoples children never went without, we really had to try and do something to help and support her children.

After Kelly Franklin was murdered she was the mum of three wonderful children who have been left heartbroken.

Police Hour has set up a JustGiving Appeal to help support the three young children following the tragic murder of their mum.

Kelly Franklin who sadly died on Friday 3rd August on Oxford Road in Hartlepool was such a loving, caring, beautiful young mother of three whose life has been tragically cut short.

Kelly was always bursting with life, happiness and joy and you would not bump into her without seeing a beautiful smile on her face. She was loved by so many and always had time for others.

Her three beautiful children were her most treasured things in her life and they are all in complete shock and horror that their mother’s life has been taken away from them and us so suddenly.

It is so difficult to find the words to describe how the family feels at this moment.

If you would like to support the appeal please click here to donate. Thank you for your support.

Two arrested after Kelly Franklin Murdered in Hartlepool

Published

on

Kelly Franklin has been named after being attacked with a knife in Hartlepool.

Kelly was a kind and caring mother of three young children. She sadly died after suffering significant injuries on Oxford Road near to Chaucer Avenue in the town.

Kelly was aged just 29 years old. A 30-year-old who was known to Kelly is currently in Police Custody.

Specially trained officers are supporting Kelly’s family and our thoughts remain with them at this extremely difficult time.

Detectives would like to again appeal for any witnesses to the incident to get in touch with them.

Police believe that Oxford Road would have been busy with vehicles travelling along Oxford Road on Friday evening, and that it is a route often used by buses and taxis.

Any drivers who were in the area of Oxford Road near to Chaucer Avenue at around 9pm on Friday evening, particularly anyone who may have dash cam footage, are asked to call them on 101.

Two people, a 30-year-old man and a 48-year-old woman, remain in custody on suspicion of murder.
