The force is collaborating with the British Association for Shooting and Conservation (BASC) to improve the force's website. It plans to attend the Northern Shooting Show later this year in company with other forces to provide advice to the public. The force website gives information and feedback to members of the shooting community and provides them with an opportunity to provide feedback.
