Members of the local community are encouraged to go along to speak with your local Neighbourhood Officers and PCSOs. Passing residents can also raise issues with the area team directly.
Sergeant Brook of GMP Saddleworth and Lees neighbourhood team, said: “We are a remote community who are fortunate enough to host one of GMP’s few satellite police stations.
“One of the primary concerns for our residents is the accessibility and visibility of police in their area and as such, we have launched new ways to open lines of communication with our community it is imperative we find out what issues are impacting on them and build key community intelligence to make us more efficient at fighting and reducing crime.”
The Sergeant’s Surgeries will run in conjunction with the team’s ‘pop up’ style surgeries introduced by Saddleworth North PCSO Mike Lowther in July 2023.
