Meet your police authority whilst you shop!

Pop along to Morrisons next Thursday..........

Shoppers in Barrow will be given the opportunity to have their say on what they think the policing priorities should be in their area, at a community engagement session held by Cumbria Police Authority. They will be hosting a community engagement session at Morrisons supermarket , on the 11th August 2011 between 10am and 2pm.

The Police Authority is responsible for making sure that Cumbria Constabulary is effective at fighting crime and provides value for money. To ensure this takes place the Authority will be hosting events around the county to engage further with the local community and find out their views.

another part of the county.
Chairman of Cumbria Police Authority, Ray Cole, said: “It is important that we are aware of the issues that affect people living in our areas, and listen to their suggestions on how to target the problems they face.
“We are keen to find out about the issues that affect individual communities. We hope these sessions will give people a voice and provide an excellent opportunity for residents to have their say on matters that cause them concern.”
