Local Movie House supports Drug Awareness campaign

09 April 2018

Antrim and Newtownabbey Policing and Community Safety Partnership (PCSP) recently teamed up with Movie House Glengormley to advertise one of their latest videos as part of the Drug Dealers Don’t Care – Do You? campaign.

This short compelling video, which demonstrates how regular drug use can have an effect on your perspective, your priorities, your intentions, your behaviours and your actions, was advertised ahead of all film screenings rated 12 years and above in the local Movie House for a two-week period over the Easter holidays. 

Chair of the Antrim and Newtownabbey PCSP, Councillor Neil Kelly commented, “As well as hitting home the message that drugs tear lives and families apart, we really want this campaign to highlight the importance of reporting drug dealing. If anyone has suspicions or concerns about drug dealing in their community, I would urge you to contact Crimestoppers anonymously on T. 0800 555 111.”

Michael McAdam of Movie House Glengormley added, “We are passionate about our local community and were happy to support Antrim and Newtownabbey PCSP by showing this thought provoking campaign, which highlights important issues for all of us.”

Campaign has been developed by Belfast PCSP in partnership with Crimestoppers, and is supported by the PSNI, The Department of Justice, alongside District Policing and Community Safety Partnerships and Drug and Alcohol Coordination Teams throughout Northern Ireland.
