Police commissioner goes walkabout in Carlton and Mapperley to see how community links can be improved

A walkabout was held in Carlton and Mapperley this week to see how police officers could improve links with the community.

Police, Gedling Borough Councillors and PCC Paddy Tipping met with local residents during the event to help identify opportunities.

The event took place  on Thursday morning (October 4) and brought together key agencies to identify areas for joint action.

It was open to the community to attend and raise any issues affecting them.

Sergeant Luke Todd said: “Local officers and I gave a brief and tour of Carlton police station, before the walkabout on Mapperley Top.

“It was a great opportunity for all of us to come together and understand how the community is feeling. I’d like to thank the PCC and Councillors for taking the time to come and to the community for spending their time with us.”

Mr Tipping said: “We know from experience that getting out and about in our communities and meeting local people helps us to build up a picture of the problems which blight our county and ensure everyone who has a part to play in solving them is on board.”

“Our emergency services workers are at the sharp end of public safety and their experiences will be useful in helping us understand the resources needed to make people safer. I’m also looking forward to meeting local people to find out how we can make life better for everyone.”
