Officers engage with community during town centre visit
Main article content
Police from the City North neighbourhood policing team have spent the day out in the community in a bid to engage with the public and show a friendly face.
Officers and PCSOs were out in Bulwell town centre on Wednesday (28 June) alongside market traders.
The team had members of the public approaching them asking for help with antisocial behaviour issues, concerns over speeding and seeking some reassurance following the recent death of a man onboard a tram.
The engagement day saw the officers handing out leaflets, free merchandise and simply just having a chat.
The day is one of many set to take place in the market over the coming months.
Bulwell Sergeant Jerone Taylor, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Being out and about where the public are and getting to spend time having conversations with the people in our community and offering them advice and guidance is so vital in making sure people feel heard and know we are there.
“Engagement days like this are so important and following the tragic events on Monday (26 June) when a man tragically lost his life onboard a tram approaching Highbury Vale – days like this are even more important so we can reassure the public and answer any questions they may have.
“As police officers we are there for our communities so if you want a chat or need any advice, please do approach one of us and we’ll always help the best we can.”
