Lets talk about Policing in Lancashire – Policing is everyones business

17 July, 2015

Lancashire’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Clive Grunshaw is encouraging residents to join him to talk about policing issues across the county. He kicks off a series of “let’s talk policing” engagements with a roadshow in Blackpool’s Houndshill Shopping Centre between 11.30am and 2pm this Friday (July 24). The Commissioner is keen to hear from as many people as possible who live and work in Lancashire.


So far a number of events have been planned with more in the pipeline. The aim is to meet and talk to as many residents as possible to discuss changing crime and how it may be affecting them and their local area.


Clive said: “Policing is everyone’s business and I want people to feel confident that they can come and talk to me about their views and issues and I will listen and respond.


“I first drew up my police and crime plan six months after I was elected to the role and have regularly asked residents their views to ensure it remains fit for purpose. However there is no doubt that the pressures on the service as a result of changes to our funding and the changing nature of crime means the Constabulary is finding new ways of working and I want to engage with people about the service they expect and need, but also about their priorities and their thoughts about how the police are funded in the future.”

Lancashire residents are invited to meet the Commissioner at the following events. More events are being planned and will be publicised on the Commissioner’s Facebook and Twitter profiles and on In the Know community alert system.
