Drop-in surgery to be held in Glossop

Posted: 19/01/2007 18:06:33

Officers from British Transport Police and colleagues from Derbyshire Constabulary will hold a drop-in surgery outside Glossop station on Monday, January 22, to speak to passengers and local people.

The surgery will be held from 6pm to 8pm from the mobile police station which will be situated outside Glossop Train Station.

Officers from British Transport police's new Neighbourhood Policing team, which covers the Glossop and Hadfield to Manchester Piccadilly line, will be joined by colleagues from Derbyshire Constabulary.

The Neighbourhood Policing Team officers will be there to listen to any concerns or comments passengers may have regarding policing and crime on the railways or at the station. They will also be there to provide information and advice on how to avoid becoming a victim of crime and to talk about the variety of work done by the new neighbourhood policing team.

Inspector Tony Fitzpatrick of British Transport Police said. "It is very important that, as local people who regularly use the trains and stations, you are able to have your say as to how they are policed. The aim is to listen to your concerns and then attempt to tackle any problems."

"We are extremely pleased to have the opportunity to work in partnership with Derbyshire Constabulary as the railway is an important part of the local community. We hope local people take the time to come and speak to us on Monday about any concerns they may have."

The Manchester Piccadilly to Glossop and Hadfield line is the first area in Greater Manchester to have a neighbourhood policing team dedicated to engaging with the local communities that use the railway.

The team consults extensively with the communities along that line to determine policing priorities, to find out about the issues concerning local people and to explain what is being done to address local crime and disorder.

The team is made up of Police Officers and PCSOs (Police Community Support Officers) who aim to find out more about the concerns of the local communities.

High on the agenda for BTP will be reassuring passengers and rail staff through tackling anti social behaviour such as low level disorder that increases fear of crime.
