Andrew was taken on a tour of the station and met other members of the local policing team.
He discussed with Fylde and Wyre Chief Inspector Sally Riley and Fylde Inspector Mick Jones, his key priorities as Commissioner, including getting tough on crime, ensuring small towns receive the same high quality of service as more urban areas and how he can support officers in dealing with the issues that matter most to people, such as anti-social behaviour, road safety and reoffending.
“It is great to be able to come to Kirkham and understand more about policing in the area, the challenges local officers are facing and how I can support them as Commissioner.
“Since winning the election last month, I have already visited various local policing teams in a number of areas and will continue this in the months ahead. It is vital to understand the unique issues across all our neighbourhoods as I move forward and shape a new Police and Crime Plan, to lead the fight against crime across Lancashire.
“My message remains a simple one, I am on your side. I will support the force in cracking down on criminals, making sure all of Lancashire’s areas and communities, from more rural areas to our largest cities, feel protected and work with the Chief Constable on the issues that matter to people, such as anti-social behaviour and getting tough on reoffending.”
