This newsletter is a roundup of local news and information gathered over the last month from your local officers.
Your local officers continue to work hard to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour in the rural areas and always pay particular attention to those issues designated as monthly priorities. We will continue to target the affected areas with high visibility patrols.
I would encourage you to approach your local officers when you see them in the area. It is only through effective listening that we can truly understand the issues that are important to you as residents. If you would rather speak to your local officer by phone, please contact 101. My staff are always happy to make themselves available to speak with you.
