Operation Payback is back for Round 5

Kim McGuinness set up Operation Payback in 2020 to return cash from crime back to the community.

To date, over a £1 million to good causes that are determined to improve lives across the region.

Youth clubs, sports clubs, community hubs and schools are the types of organisations who have benefited.

“There have been some fantastic results by Northumbria Police lately – lots of arrests and lots of money has been taken back and out of the wrong hands. There’s no better use for cash seized from crime than channelling it right back into our communities investing in real action and activities that kids want and benefit from and that in turn we keep them out of trouble.” – Northumbria Police and Crime Commissioner ” — Kim McGuinness
