Burntwood residents are being invited to have a cuppa with a copper.

Regular police surgeries to help people get to know their local police officers, pick up advice and raise any community issues are now being held at Burntwood Library.

Neighbourhood officer, PCSO Tim Hughes, says people can also “share a cuppa with a copper” when they turn up to the library on Sankey’s Corner on August 15 between 2pm and 3pm.

PCSO Hughes said:

“I’m new to the Burntwood area and am keen to meet local people and get to know the local issues which may concern them. Surgeries are a chance for local residents to meet neighbourhood officers like myself and discuss any community concerns as well as picking up advice on crime reduction.”

PCSO Hughes and his neighbourhood police colleagues will also be joining local councillors at their monthly surgeries at the library – again to enable local people to keep in touch.

The local councillor surgeries are held on the first Saturday of each month at the library and police will beavailable to discuss any issues following the surgeries from 11am.

PCSO Hughes added:

“We work very closely with community partners and, very often, issues raised by residents can be resolved by one or more of the community partners such as the local council or a housing provider.”

Regular police surgeries and similar meetings are part of a commitment by Trent Valley police to give local people a voice and encourage them to get to know their local neighbourhood officers.

People can find their neighbourhood officer’s name, phone and e-mail details by visiting their local police station, calling the force on 0300 123 44 55 or by logging on to the local policing link on the homepage of the force’s website.
