Merseyside's Police Commissioner is today joining a special lunch on the stage at Liverpool's Royal Court Theatre to continue to develop Terriers.

In partnership with the Royal Court Trust, Jane is joining a host of partners on the main stage at the art deco theatre to bring discuss the future development of the crime drama, written by Merseyside playwright Maurice Bessman.

The Commissioner has been a project ambassador for Terriers since 2013 and has helped to fund its delivery across Merseyside through her Crime Prevention Fund.

The production, which warns young people of the dangers of becoming involved with guns and gangs, has now been seen by more than 200,000 young people.

The play was first commissioned by Merseyside Police and marked its 10th anniversary in 2018, and the lunch will provide an opportunity to review the project and explore how best to mark a decade of working across Merseyside and beyond.

Jane will lead the discussion about the impact of the Terriers and look at ways partners can work to ensure the production continues to engage with more young people, youth agencies, schools, education professionals, and agencies to reduce the risk of young people getting involved in crime.
