Residents in Brimington invited to help set policing priorities

Posted on 7th May 2015

Residents in Brimington are being invited to have their say on policing priorities for their community.

PCSO Gareth Turner from the parish’s Safer Neighbourhood team is hosting a community panel meeting on Saturday, June 13 from 11am to 12pm at the Church Rooms on Church Street in Brimington.

Local people are being urged to voice any issues or concerns they may have about their neighbourhoods.

The team will then use feedback from the public to set policing priorities to work towards for the following three months.

Current priorities for the team were set following a meeting with residents in September. Local officers have since been working to tackle illegal drug supply and misuse across the Brimington area.

They have been gathering information about drug dealing and targeting anyone responsible through drugs raids; forging relationships within the community to reassure residents; taking appropriate action against anyone found to be committing drug offences and working with the council's housing department to ensure a joint approach through evictions.

Another current priority for the team is speeding vehicles on Manor Road. Officers have increased patrols and have been carrying out spot speed enforcement checks alongside the roads policing unit in a bid to combat the issue.

If you are unable to attend the meeting but would like to have your say, contact your local Safer Neighbourhood team on 101.
