Police invite local residents to have their say at upcoming pop-up shops

Posted on 18th October 2013

New Mills residents are being invited to chat to the police about issues affecting their community at upcoming surgeries.

Officers from New Mills and Hayfield Safer Neighbourhood Team will be taking centre stage in the Co-operative store, Church Road and New Mills Library, Hall Street.  

The drop-in meetings are designed to give people the chance to raise concerns with officers and help set neighbourhood policing priorities for their area.

The team will be on hand to give out crime prevention advice and keep local residents updated about police operations and campaigns.

PCSO Will Brockett from New Mills and Hayfield Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “The pop-up surgeries are part of a new pilot scheme which will give us a great opportunity to chat to people about any issues that they may have in a relaxed environment.

“It is a fantastic way for us to find out what really matters to the residents of New Mills and Hayfield by speaking to local people about problems in their neighbourhoods and what they think we should be focusing on”.

The pop-up shops are replacing the quarterly governance meetings to allow the team to be more accessible to members of the public by setting up the surgeries at busy locations.

Dates for the pop up shops have now been set for 2013.
