Your latest Smart Alert.

Space 2016 runs from today (Monday 25 July) until 2 September with a wide range of fun activities – many of them free – for young people across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent.

Space was originally an activities scheme led by police in Staffordshire aimed at engaging young people before it stopped in the 1990s. Space 2016, co-ordinated by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Staffordshire, is aimed at increasing skills, improving health and wellbeing, and creating opportunities for young people aged 11 and 17 to take part in positive activities to make communities safer.

Matthew Ellis, the Police and Crime Commissioner for Staffordshire, said: "I promised Space 2016 would happen and now it has landed. There has been a lot of work to get us to this stage and I would like to thank all the organisations who have helped to make this possible.

"Last year Space saw more than 13,300 attendances by young people at over 580 activities and it was great to see such positive activities taking place. The money I have pledged will help to increase young people’s personal skills and improve their health and general wellbeing by creating opportunities for them to get involved in during the school summer holiday.

"Places are getting booked up fast so check out the website and book your place soon."

Activities are being added daily to the Space website so keep checking

Pokémon Go Advice

Your latest Smart Alert.

People in Staffordshire are being warned to stay safe and take steps to protect their personal data when playing Pokémon Go, the latest online gaming craze. Staffordshire Police is also urging people to take into account personal safety if going to locations that are unknown to them that could, potentially, place themselves in a vulnerable situation.

In addition, people are also being urged to use common sense and sensible judgement and not to go to places and locations they would ordinarily not got to on a day to day basis, such as hospitals or A&E departments.

Literally millions of gamers across the world are downloading the app which uses your phone’s clock and GPS to detect where you are in the game and make Pokémon appear around you on your screen so you can find and catch them. If gamers move around, more types of Pokémon will appear according to the time and your location.

Officers are urging players to remember the real world when catching Pokémon by issuing the following top tips:-

Remember, don’t make yourself vulnerable – don’t be tempted to take your phone out in busy or unlit areas where you could be a target for thieves.

Always concentrate on any dangers around you and be especially careful when crossing the road – look where you are going and what is coming, don’t just focus on your mobile phone.

Never play the game when driving as this is a criminal offence and you will be prosecuted if caught.

Ensure that you don’t trespass on private property
