Marshland residents given chance to learn how they can help community safety
RESIDENTS across Marshland are being encouraged to attend a meeting next month to learn how they can help make their community safer.
Terrington Safer Neighbourhood Team is inviting existing and prospective co-ordinators and members of the Home Watch scheme to the event on Tuesday November 2.
It aims to give people the chance to find out more about how Norfolk Home Watch can help residents interact with police to prevent and reduce crime in the community.
PCSO Chris Lorraine, who will host the event at The Walpole Community Centre in Walpole St Andrew, said: “Home Watch schemes are run by residents, with police support, and can play an incredibly important role in not just preventing and reducing crime but also giving people peace of mind, knowing their neighbours are looking out for them.”
The Terrington policing neighbourhood is made up of villages that include Terrington St Clement, Tilney All Saints, Walpole Cross Keys, Walpole, Terrington St John, Tilney St Lawrence, Walpole Highway, West Walton and Walsoken.
