THE Lowestoft South Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) will be holding a police surgery this Wednesday (March 11) and are encouraging members of the public to attend to not only meet their two local officers but to raise any issues of concern.

The surgery will be taking place at Whitton Life at the Green at 11am and Police Constable Claire Davey and Police Community Support Officer Norman Drew will be in attendance as anyone who lives or works within Whitton is invited along to attend.

Police Constable Claire Davey said: 'We are asking everyone in Whitton to come along and talk to us. We want to hear about their views and any problems they have experienced in which we can help. Norman and myself are hoping to meet all types of people from all walks of life.

'Community engagement is a key area of work for Safer Neighbourhood Teams. We want to hear how to make people feel safer in the areas in which they live and work. We want to hear about any issues they have so that these can be set as priorities and resolved. This is the first meeting in a long series of events aimed at achieving a better working relationship with the community.'

Safer Neighbourhood Teams were set up to address local problems by listening to residents about what concerns them most about their community. This could include crime, anti-social behaviour, littering, parking or other environmental issues. Police work with partners, including local councils, to try to find solutions to these problems, working with the community to find the best way to tackle concerns.
