Sheringham safer neighbourhood team will be hosting a week long engagement event in the town centre.

The event will be held from Monday 9 to Saturday 14 June at the Sheringham clock tower on Station Road which will be transformed into an old fashioned police box.

Officers will be at the tower between 9am and 5pm everyday speaking to the local community on any police matters including advice on setting up a Homewatch scheme, ways to contact the police, home security and how to get more involved in your local Safer Neighbourhood Action Panel (SNAP), to name a few.

Members of the Environmental Health team at North Norfolk District Council will be joining officers at set times during the week and will be happy to speak to resident about  dog fouling, littering, noise nuisance and their newly  launched a Community Dog Warden volunteer Scheme.

Free cycle security bicycle marking will be available and Saturday will see a visit from the Norfolk Special Constabulary mounted officers and the Norfolk and Suffolk Roads Policing Unit and their Lotus car.

PC Ian Smith, from Sheringham safer neighbourhood team: “This week long event is really an opportunity for officers to speak face-to-face to members of our community to discuss issues or concerns they may have and let them know what we are doing in the local area.”

“Hopefully we will be fairly obvious in our police box at the clock tower so I would encourage anyone in the area over the six day period to pop along – if we can’t help you we should certainly be able to point you in the right direction!”

For further information on the event please contact Sheringham safer neighbourhood team on 101.
