TOWN RESIDENTS TO DISCUSS PRIORITIES

Residents in Long Eaton are being invited to have their say on local policing issues at an upcoming priority event. Officers from the Long Eaton Town Safer Neighbourhood Team are set to host a panel meeting on Monday, November 30th to discuss community issues with local people. Residents will have the chance to voice their concerns before team members use feedback to set policing priorities to work towards tackling.
A current priority for the team, made up of Sergeant Nick Pitt, PC Claire March and PCSO Heidi Andrew, is targeting theft from motor vehicles in the area. Officers have been conducting high-visibility and covert patrols in problem hotspots and offering advice to local motorists on how to secure their vehicles effectively.
Officers have also been working to tackle shoplifting in the town centre by stepping up patrols in the area, sharing useful information with local businesses to prevent crime and taking action against offenders. The panel meeting is set to take place from 5pm to 6pm Long Eaton Police Station on Derby Road.
If you are unable to attend the meeting but you would like to submit your priority suggestions, you can do so via this link: http://www.derbyshire.police.uk/My-Local-Police/DDivision/LongEatonSection/LongEatonTown/submit-priorities.aspx
