Hartlepool Coastal Surveillance Station aims to provide assistance in the protection and preservation of life and property of the people using inshore waters, beaches, piers and coastal areas in and around Hartlepool bay.
Volunteers provide surveillance cover, 8 hours per day, 7 days a week and report any safety issues to the relevant emergency services including the Coastguard, Police, RNLI and UK Border Agency.
The Station applied for funding to help with their on-going running costs which include Radar Licence and Sea Safety Fee. The charity has been running since 1989.
This initiative supports the PCC’s priorities of Working Together to Make Cleveland Safer and Investing in Our Police.
