A mini police station will be opening on Gorleston seafront on Saturday to help keep beach goers safe over the summer.
The beach pod will open at 11am with people able to meet with officers from the town and members of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) to discuss any concerns they may have.
The RNLI has been encouraged to share the pod to allow them to raise funds for the lifeboat station and support the police's safety message.
PC Hananah Gardiner, Great Yarmouth engagement officer, said: 'We hope the beach pod will act as a point of safety for those visiting the beach.
'In the summer months Gorleston has a transient community who may not be aware where the police station is. 'The beach pod will act as a visible policing presence and will allow us the opportunity to offer reassurance and safety messages to our communities.'
