HOPE in Tottenham & the TSG (territorial Support Group)
The TSG (Territorial Support Group) and HOPE in Tottenham’s school engagement session video we shot in November 2021 is up on our Promo page – have a watch, it’s quite the eye-opener.
The Territorial Support Group is a Met Operations unit of London’s Metropolitan Police Service which specialises in public order policing, amongst other specialist areas. This a video that covers one of their scheduled school visits in North London in association with HOPE in Tottenham – such engagement sessions, are an opportunity to bring together young people with the Police service in the form of presentation and integration, helping build stronger relationships in communities and in turn fosters better understanding, acceptance and insight of each other.
We were very pleased to be working on this, which was kind of unknown, in terms of exactly what we were to expect and get – and we love that! It all happened extremely quickly and kind of just unfolded rapidly in front of us, it was classic point and shoot.
