Communities will have a number of opportunities to speak to the Police and Crime Commissioner face to face on rural crime issues, as part of the ongoing Rural Focus campaign.
The following drop in events are taking place:
- 8am- 10am, Wednesday 22nd January 2020: Worcester Livestock Market, Nunnery Way, Worcester WR4 0SQ
- 12.30pm-2.30pm, Thursday 23rd January 2020: Withington Village Hall, Coppice Close, Hereford HR1 3PP
- 6pm- 8pm, Thursday 23rd January 2020: Stoke Prior Village Hall, Hanbury Rd, Stoke Prior, Worcestershire B60 4DN
- 5.30pm- 7.30pm, Tuesday 4th February 2020: Culmington Village Hall, Craven Arms, SY8 2DA
Not only will the public be able to discuss any concerns with the PCC on a one to one basis, but at each event, there will be valuable crime prevention tips and advice from specialist Rural and Business Officers and local policing teams, as well as the opportunity to collect a free Smartwater crime prevention pack, to protect your home or business.
Commissioner John Campion said “The impact of rural crime isn’t to be understated, which is why I am focusing on making rural communities feel safer and less isolated. These events have already provided people with a great opportunity to have their concerns heard and for action to be taken. I’d encourage people to take advantage of these opportunities, where you will be listened to, and you can gain some valuable advice to help protect your home or business.”
