Filming enquiries

Northumbria Police are regularly approached by programme-makers requesting access to film officers, staff and the work they carry out.

The Force values openness and recognises the role of such productions in showing the public the realities of policing. However, this must be balanced against the requirement for confidentiality, possible disruption to policing arising from filming, welfare of those taking part, and our capacity to provide necessary support to ensure filming is carried out appropriately, legally and safely.

In order to ensure requests are considered thoroughly and fairly, we ask all prospective programme-makers to submit a filming request for our consideration. This form can be found below. 

Once the form has been completed it should be returned to

This contact is for media enquiries only and not for general members of the public

If you are a member of the public, in an emergency dial 999.
