CONSTITUENTS are being called upon by West Lancs MP Rosie Cooper to fully engage in the new Lancashire Police and Crime Commissioner Andrew Snowden’s survey on what issues residents face when it comes to crime, antisocial behaviour and policing.
Ms Cooper has regularly challenged the Constabulary to provide increased policing across West Lancashire related to a wide range of policing issues.
She has also challenged the Government and Policing Minister previously to provide adequate resource for Lancashire Constabulary. She said: “With the new PCC in place he has set about gathering residents’ views to inform his Police and Crime Plan.
“Based on the high volume of casework I receive related to policing matters from antisocial behaviour, mini-moto and scrambler use, burglaries, and much more, I have no doubt that residents will have plenty to tell the Commissioner about.
“I’d encourage residents to take part in the survey and champion more resource coming into West Lancashire so we can see more bobbies back on the beat, and I will continue to call on the Home Office to invest in Lancashire Constabulary and enable it to get back up to reasonable numbers after it was initially hit with a loss of 750 officers.
“We need all of the officers back and more to ensure residents feel safe and secure in their homes and their communities.”
