The PCSP will be holding its first police engagement meeting on Thursday 9th June at 7.30pm in Dromore Bowling Pavilion.

Neighbourhood Watch groups, local community representatives and members of the public interested in working with the police and the PCSP to prevent crime are warmly invited to attend.

Key issues that will be discussed will include burglary, rural crime, the Text Alert Scheme for Neighbourhood Watch Coordinators and any other issues that may arise.

Chairman of the PCSP, Councillor Robert Smith said: “We would like to encourage as many people as possible to attend this meeting,.

“It is a great opportunity to raise issues directly with the Police and Policing and Community Safety Partnership to find local solutions to local problems and concerns.”

These events are part of seven which have been organised to take place through the ABC council area.
