Come and chat to beat bobbies
COMMUNITY police officers will be available to discuss local issues with residents of Charlton Kings at a new police point today.
Residents in the area will get their first taste of the new offices, which provide a new way of getting in touch with officers from their local policing team.
The point will be open in the new community building next to the library in Church Piece.
The office will be used as a drop-in centre for local residents to come and meet with their officers, ask any questions, report any concerns and to pick up crime prevention advice.
Gents, come in to Earl's & Co and enjoy a haircut and finish, glass of whisky and a shoeshine for £18.50
Terms: Later and earlier appointments available upon request
Contact: 01242 504887
Valid until: Tuesday, December 31 2013
Sergeant for the local policing team Simon Ellson said: "We'll be advertising the hours an officer will be at the police point in advance and we hope that local people will make good use of it as yet another way they can talk to us.
"We patrol throughout the area regularly, but we do still feel that it's important for people to have a space where they can come and speak to us in confidence."
PCSOs Sue Greenwood and Julie Lewis will be at the new police point today between 9am and 1pm.
