British youth communications group Dubit has designed and launched a web-based serious game called City Zones in conjunction with West Yorkshire Police, in order to help schoolchildren in the United Kingdom promote good citizenship and encourage them to take care of their environment. The website and accompanying Macromedia Flash-based game, which does not require registration or personal details and is free to play, uses messages provided by the police to encourage players to achieve specified objectives. Playing the game raises issues that need to be acted upon such as race and hate crimes, theft, crime reporting, crime reporting and environmental and personal safety issues. “We were pleased to work with West Yorkshire Police, especially with this project as much of our work resolves around young people and community safety issues,” commented Ian Douthwaite from Dubit. “I am particularly pleased with the characterization and graphics of the game and believe we have produced an exciting and challenging game for young people to enjoy and learn from.” Nick Cook, Head of Year 8 at Prince Henry Grammar School, added, “We are very proud to be working in partnership with West Yorkshire Police. The aim of the website is to encourage pupils in lower school (11-14) to become better citizens which ties in nicely with the focus of the school's aims.”
