Local Policing newsletters
The latest local policing newsletter for each ward in Croydon is posted on CCC’s website. Copies of the latest newsletter for Coulsdon East were made available on the night. All were encouraged to sign up to receive these newsletters and occasional important updates by emailing their local policing team.
We are currently planning our next meeting.
At our open meetings, anyone can raise a topic for discussion, promote a local event or group, give a notice, discuss an issue or ask a question of others. All we ask is that people respect that CCC and our meetings are apolitical.
Our next meeting will be on a specific subject so here will be no time for notices and general topics to be discussed.
We’ll advertise details when they are confirmed and hope you will be able to attend.
