South Ribble Police have confirmed they will be adding two more dates for their ‘Coffee With a Cop’ scheme.
‘Coffee With a Cop’ is an opportunity for members of the public to meet with liaison officers to discuss concerns relating to policing in their community.
Vehicle crime has been a particularly hot topic for residents in the South Ribble and Leyland areas, following a number of thefts from vehicles over the last few months.
A South Ribble Police spokesman said, “We are currently working hard (along with our Tasking Team) to battle the amount of vehicle crime in the area. We understand this is a priority for a lot of Penwortham Residents in the area.
“Please ensure you LOCK all of your vehicles/buildings. This is the first barrier to stopping criminals access your personal belongings.
“A lot of crime in the area is based on ‘opportunist’ criminals and this can be stopped just by double-checking your belongings are secure!”
The dates added for the Coffee With a Cop are;
Wednesday 15th January 2020, 13:00-14:30 @ Costa Coffee, Liverpool Road.
Tuesday 4th February 2020, 17:00-18:30 @ Barrel And Bean, Leyland Road.
