RESIDENTS are being invited to discuss local crime issues with senior police officers.

RESIDENTS are being invited to discuss local crime issues with senior police officers.

Northumberland’s senior police officer, Chief Superintendent Steve Neill, will be meeting local residents next Thursday, January 26 to discuss plans for the future policing of the area.

The meeting has been organised by Northumbria Police Authority and will be chaired by Mrs Tina Drury, who is a police authority member.

The meeting is the latest in a series of Police and Community Forum meetings to be held in Northumberland this year as part of the police authority’s regular consultations with the public about crime and policing.

Police and Community forums are open, public meetings which allow local residents to ask senior local police officers about the policing of their area – and to have their say on its effectiveness.

Anyone can attend a forum meeting to either have their say or simply listen to what is being discussed.

Thursday’s meeting of the North Tyneside Police and Community Forum will be held at Battle Hill Primary School, Berwick Drive, Battle Hill at 7pm.
