Banbridge Policing and Community Safety Partnership (PCSP) recently worked with local police to engage with parents and carers of young families at a Sure Start Banbridge event at Banbridge Leisure Centre.

The PCSP and the PSNI Banbridge Area had a joint stand at the event.

It provided a great opportunity to engage with and talk to people who have young children or who are involved in caring for them as well as local businesses that provide related services.

Children and young people were able to look round a car that has been customised for promotional use by the police whilst the PCSP distributed information packs including home safety advice.

If you would like to have your say about local policing delivery, if you have any issues to raise about crime and anti-social behaviour where you live or is you would just like to meet your local PSNI Neighbourhood Officers, then please come along to any of the local public meetings that have been arranged by the PCSP Policing Committee.

They will be taking place throughout the district over the next few months with the timetable as follows:
