RESIDENTS are invited to raise any neighbourhood policing issues with the local Police Community Support Officer (PCSO).
PCSO Amanda King will be at Lyme Regis Library on Saturday, February 24 between 9.30am and 12.30pm to meet Lyme Regis, Charmouth and Marshwood Vale residents.
PCSO King is part of the Lyme Regis Neighbourhood Policing Team and she will be joined by members of the local Crime Prevention Team.
Residents can raise with PCSO King any neighbourhood policing concerns they may have, and the local Crime Prevention Team will be on hand to provide information and advice.
Information will also be available on Neighbourhood Watch schemes. These are community-led but the police support watch groups and are able to provide crime prevention advice and recommendations about issues such as personal safety, home security and staying safe online when required.
PCSO King said: “Neighbourhood Watch helps to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour; volunteers can use their local expertise to spot suspicious activity and assist the police with their enquiries.
“These schemes also bring people together in a community.
“If there isn’t a Neighbourhood Watch scheme in your area, come along to the library and find out how to set one up, or simply to learn more about them.”
