Talk to an Amble cop

Posted on 26th January 2011 | in Community , News

Residents in the Alnwick and Amble areas are being reminded to go online tomorrow evening (Thursday, January 27) and join their local neighbourhood officers in an online virtual meeting.

Alnwick and Amble Neighbourhood Sergeant Neville Wharrier will host the online PACT (Partners and Communities Together) between 7pm and 9pm, giving residents the opportunity to post any questions they have about crime and disorder in the area. And, as the meetings are live, a response will be provided almost immediately.

All residents need to do is log on to http://www.northumbria.police.uk/your_neighbourhood/northumberland/alnwick/online/index.asp.

Sgt Wharrier said: “These online meetings are being held in the area to see what people think of them. We know people are busy and can’t always find the time to make it to a public meeting or pop into the station, and so these online meetings give anyone the chance to speak to police direct from the comfort of their own home. They can ask questions, raise issues or speak about concerns and will get a response straight back from an officer.

“The online meetings are not replacing the real public meetings that we hold, they are simply just another way for us to engage with our communities.”

The online forums are just one of the ways residents in Northumberland can find out what police are doing in their area, they can also follow Northumberland Area Command on Twitter and Facebook. For more information visit the Northumbria Police website.
