Main article content
Officers from Stoke South Neighbourhood Policing Team (NPT) are continuing to visit different areas this week to further engage with the local community in order to address any concerns.
This week’s visits follow similar events which took place across Bentilee, Blurton and Longton last week and will see officers travel in the mobile police station vehicle to answer questions and issue crime prevention advice to local residents.
This week, officers will be visiting the following locations from 10am to 3pm each day: • Hanley Park, Shelton - Wednesday 16 February • Trent Vale Tesco - Thursday 17 February • Stoke Market car park - Friday 18 February • Queens Park, Dresden - Saturday 19 February.
Speaking of last week’s events, Inspector Scott McGrath, of Staffordshire Police, said: “The overall feedback and engagement from the public was very positive.
“Officers were notified of a wide variety of issues – from anti-social behaviour to issues with derelict properties.
“Some of these concerns will require a collaborative response with our local authority partners who we continue to work closely with.
“The deployment of the mobile police station provides visibility across community hotspots and gives members of the public a great opportunity to engage with our officers, raise local concerns and seek advice across a multitude of areas.
“We are committed to these events and we hope to continue to interact with our local communities and action these concerns and queries.”
