Public get to have their say on policing the city

Have your say

A SERIES of meetings designed to allow communities to have their say on how local policing should be delivered is taking place across the city.

The events will allow the public to shape policing priorities ahead of the single police service of Scotland coming into being.

The first meeting takes place at Craigroyston High School tonight, from 7-9pm.

Chief Superintendent Malcolm Graham, commander of the City of Edinburgh Division, said: “We know that the key to policing communities effectively is to listen to local people and then deliver in partnership with them. These consultations are crucial to how we plan.”

Councillor Michael Bridgman, convenor of the future city emergency services committee, said: “These meetings are a great opportunity for local communities to share their views.”
