Local policing team newsletters
Anyone can sign up to these newsletters and occasional important updates from their local policing team. Newsletters also contain details of ward panel meetings. Local policing teams are keen to hear from residents and business owners/workers on their priorities and concerns for the ward.
CCC post all local policing team ward newsletters on the website, but in order to avoid delay and to ensure that people receive important updates as soon as they are released, do sign up directly with the local policing team (previously called the Safer Neighbourhood team) to get the information as soon as it is released.
Find all newsletters, here.
