Creswell residents invited to chat to local police at upcoming events

Posted on 1st May 2015

Residents in Creswell are being invited to speak to local officers about issues in their community.

The village’s Safer Neighbourhood team is hosting a police surgery from 10am to 11.30am on Thursday, May 7 at Creswell Police Office on Elmton Road.

PC Martyn Whyte and PCSO’s Matt Wardle and Jennifer Salmon will be on hand during the morning to chat to local residents and offer advice around personal and home security as the summer months arrive.

The team is also urging residents to have their say on local policing issues at an upcoming community panel meeting. The meeting will take place from 2.30pm until 4pm on Monday, May 18, at the same location.

Community members can help to shape future priorities for the team at this meeting, and officers will set future targets based on feedback given.

Current priorities for the area include nuisance motorbikes around the village and anti-social behaviour (ASB) and insecurities at the Model Village Miners Welfare building.

If you can’t attend the meetings but would like to have your say, call your local policing team on 101. You can also keep up to date on Twitter by following @CreswellSNT.
