Burnley and Padiham residents urged to talk to police

NEIGHBOURHOOD police officers are urging residents living in Burnley and Padiham to attend monthly meetings in their ward.

Police and Communities Together (PACT) meetings are taking place for all wards during December, and officers are urging people to come forward with their concerns so that they can tackle them.

A police spokesman said: “Every single ward in Burnley and Padiham has a dedicated Neighbourhood Policing Team in their area working with them to keep them safe.

“Through initiatives like PACT is it is their aim to identify local concerns and tackle them. Where we know there is a clear problem, we can take action - and we do.

“All we ask is that people come along to the next PACT meeting to see us and to discuss with us any crime and disorder issues they may have.”

For details of your local meeting speak to your local neighbourhood policing team.

Why go to PACT??? we have the new police commissoiners who listen to everybody and know what the community proirities are (well thats what they said) they tell the police what to do, so why hold hundreds of PACT meetings across the country when there are less police doing more work. There is a police commissioner on £85k begging folk to converse with him or her

I am a bit late commenting on this news - when are the PACT meetings held - what nights of the month? Last one I attended was at tea-time when most folk would just be arriving home from work or making the tea - a silly time to have a public meeting.That is why I do not attend anymore - mind you that was a few years ago. Unfortunately I am not very physically active these days so do not see any notices anywhere.
