SKELMERSDALE Police is joining together with colleagues from Lancashire Fire and Rescue and North West Ambulance Service, alongside the local council and community and faith based groups at a special event to discuss ways of working together effectively to create a “safer town to live, work and visit”.

It will take place on Tuesday, March 24 from 7pm until 9pm at Hope Theatre, West Lancashire College, Northway, Skelmersdale, WN8 6DX.

Members of the community are welcome and encouraged to attend to discuss any issues they face, and how people can all work together for the “good of the public”.

People who live, work or volunteer in West Lancashire, are invited to join the conversation. Attendance must be registered prior to the event.

Geographic Inspector of West Lancashire Police, Ellie Kanoun said: “It’s important that we work with the local community to find out what their key issues are and look at ways of working together to resolve them.”

Clive Grunshaw, Lancashire's Police and Crime Commissioner said: "I am committed to listening and engaging with the public to understand their concerns and issues and ensure that Lancashire Police is meeting their needs.

"A lot of the concerns that the people of Lancashire raise with me are not isolated to policing and often touch upon other issues including the health service and other local authorities. That is why events like this are crucial, bringing partners together and offering the best opportunity to tackle some of the issues that are raised.

"I regularly consult the public on their policing priorities, with this input an important part of the creation of my Police and Crime Plan. Having made £86m of savings since 2010 and more still to find, it is even more important to ensure that our plans meet operational needs and dealing with issues that matter to people."

Members of the public are asked to come with questions that concern a number of services, as this will not be an exclusive police drop in.
