Meeting the police

January 11th, 2007 · Posted by Skuds in Life · No Comments · Life

Nick Somers, one of our local PCSOs, was in our road this afternoon delivering a leaflet to all houses advertising something called a street briefing.

The idea seems to be that they will hang around in our street for a couple of hours next Tuesday evening with their mobile CCTV van and anyone who wants to can approach them and discuss any issues they might have.

It sounds like a good idea: if very few residents ever get round to going along to the various public meetings at the community centre and other venue why not bring the meetings right to where everyone lives? It is something political parties do with their street surgeries.

Personally I would rather be doing that sort of thing later in the year when it is lighter and warmer, but they must have confidence in those big jackets of theirs!

Anyway, they will be in Farnham Close between 6pm and 8pm on Tuesday 16th January if anyone is interested, ready to answer questions, offer advice on crime prevention and setting up a neighbourhood watch scheme, or just to say hello.
