Drop-in police surgery in Cranbrook this Saturday

It comes after residents were urged to report all crime or anti-social behaviour, to provide evidence of the need for more visible policing
Cranbrook residents will be able to raise any concerns about crime or anti-social behaviour to the police this Saturday.
A drop-in surgery will take place at the Cranberry Farm.
Cranbrook Town Council has been lobbying for a more visible police presence for some time, and has been told by the Police and Crime Commissioner that it is vital for local residents to report all incidents.
Alison Hernandez said doing this will help provide the evidence of a need for more policing resources to be deployed to the town.
“Reporting is really important. It is logged and it has a resourcing implication,” she told the meeting.
Devon and Cornwall police have also said they need as much information as possible from communities about any suspected offenders, so that they can take action when the resources are available.
The drop-in session will run from 1pm until 2pm, and Councillor Kim Bloxham will also attend in case the police are called to an incident during the event.
