Shoppers who have time to find out more about policing in South Holland can do at a summer event in Spalding next month.

Lincolnshire Police is hosting one of ten engagement events across the county in Market Place on Tuesday August 19 between 10am and 3.30pm.

The event coincides with Spalding’s traditional market day when anyone in the town centre can chat to police officers and bring up any concerns they have about personal safety, home security and anti-social behaviour.

An extract from a Community Engagement Strategy put together by Lincolnshire Police and Crime Commissioner Alan Hardwick said: “Engaging with our communities is a key responsibility and is strongly linked to building confidence with the communities of Lincolnshire.

“Strong accountability of the force must be an integral part of helping to increase confidence and this is the role of the Police and Crime Commissioner.”

Mr Hardwick has also announced plans for a new Community Remedy in cases of “low-level anti-social behaviour” where victims can have a say on how such incidents should be dealt with.

The new powers are part of the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 and you can have your say until August 26 by going to
