Fancy a cuppa with a copper?

Area Manager Laura Terry has asked me if I’d give a plug her ‘Cuppa with a Copper’ event taking place on Saturday, 22nd October at the Pelsall Village Centre from 11am to 1pm – at which you can informally meet members of the local policing and neighbourhood watch teams and discuss matters that concern you.

In the wake of recent crime and ASB issues locally, this could be a very good opportunity to take up the problems you may be experiencing with the local coppers and find out what they’re doing to help.

Although this event is in Pelsall, Laura is hopeful a session can also be organised for Brownhills once some issues have been ironed out.

Area Partnerships in conjunction with West Midlands Police have arranged a drop in session, to give you the opportunity to meet your Local Neighbourhood Team Police officer and Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinator for the Pelsall Area.

‘Cuppa with a Copper’ will be held on Saturday 22nd October 2016, between 11am and 1pm at Pelsall Village Centre, in the foyer of the Library, High Street, Pelsall, WS3 4LX. Light refreshments will be provided, and a variety of community safety information will be available.

This session will run on a drop in basis – there is no need to pre-book or reserve a space, it will give you an opportunity to chat to your local Police and Neighbourhood Watch, as well as gathering some useful information about keeping yourselves and your property safe as the darker nights approach.

Please note; Reports of crime and ASB should be made using the usual routes. If you have an ongoing policing issue affecting you or your area, a report should be made to the Neighbourhood Police team via calling 101. If your problem is an emergency, an immediate call to 999 would be appropriate.

We look forward to seeing you.
