People will be able to meet Lichfield’s local police commander to discuss local issues.

Inspector Rachel Joyce and other officers will be at DMS Whittington from noon to 4pm on Thursday (May 8).

Insp Joyce said: “I want to make sure that the service we provide is based on the needs of the communities we serve.

“We are accountable to the public and we are committed to being open and transparent in how we serve our communities. One of the ways to do this is to be visible and accessible.

“Understanding the issues that people tell us matter the most to them, and taking action to resolve those issues, has to be a priority.”

    I think this is an excellent idea . It means that those of us who have not seen a copper for years can go along and see what one looks like.
    At the same time the police do not have to worry about walking along a dimly lit unfamiliar street or having strangers say “Hello” without appointment.

    Pointless. I’ve tried before to raise the serious issue of the criminal waste of money the council is guilty of and the police won’t listen. I pay my taxes, they should be forced to sit and listen to me complaining about everything for at least 30 minutes every day. If they did, I wouldn’t have to come on here. So we’re all losers at the end of the day.
