E-Cops - If you only read one Ecops this month....

Between myself and Sgt Capes and Sgt Davidson we read all the ecops messages that go out, and come back from subscribers. We receive many positive messages about some of the work our officers undertake in the community. I also receive a good deal of messages about issues that we were not aware of that do need to be looked at by my officers.

All yours messages and suggestions get fed back to our officers and we make every effort to take action in the areas your raise. However every three months I attend a Neighbourhood Panel meeting (public meeting) where we hear from residents and councillors alike what issues are current in your neighbourhoods and what you would like us to do. We prioritise these concerns above every thing else and commit to taking action over the next three month period. I also personally report to the audience what my team have been doing in the previous three months to tackle your concerns.

The meetings have much more value than this simple idea as also in attendance are District and County reps along side a number of County, District and Parish council reps who want to listen to anything you have to say about your neighbourhood. So between all three agencies and Parish councils we'd like to hear about any issue you feel we can help with from fly tipping, street lighting, speeding, crime and disorder. Alternatively perhaps you would just like to learn more about how each agency deal with a particular area of business.

To find out about the next meeting in your areas, visit our website, go to my neighbourhood and look under "dates for your diary".

Many thanks

Sgt Paul Rogerson
