Newcastle Street Pastors Commissioning Service
Since the launch of Newcastle Street Pastors in December 2008 they have worked together with other partners in the night-time economy to make Newcastle safer.
Their contribution has been recognised by Northumbria Police and Best Bar None who have awarded them excellence and special recognition awards respectively.
This week they commissioned 8 new Street Pastors at a special commissioning service attended by church leaders, partner agencies, friends and family.
Premier’s Northern Correspondent Ian Britton was also invited and compiled this special report.
