Ripley residents set policing priorities


Residents in Ripley are being invited to have their say on local policing issues at an upcoming meeting in the town.

Officers from the Ripley Safer Neighbourhood Team will be hosting a Community Panel Meeting on Wednesday, March 25 to give residents the opportunity to raise any neighbourhood concerns with them.

The meeting will take place from 6pm at the Ripley Safer Neighbourhood Team’s office in the Town Hall on Market Place, Ripley.

It is a chance for residents to meet officers, find out more about current community issues and to raise any concerns about crime in their area with the team.

Police will then set neighbourhood priorities to focus on for the following few months, based on feedback from the public

The current neighbourhood priority, which was set following the November meeting, sees the team tackling anti-social behaviour on the Greenway leading to Ripley Town Centre.

If you are unable to attend the meeting but would like to put forward any issues contact your local Safer Neighbourhood policing team on 101, and follow them on Twitter: @RipleySNT
