|Engagement Officers launch new project ‘Community SOS’|
A new project is being launched by Norfolk Constabulary’s seven Engagement Officers in a bid to build stronger links with local communities. Called ‘Community SOS’, they will as a group give up a day, when not on duty, to assist with a local project in their district. The officers have been in post for a year, with their roles supporting existing community relationships by growing new local activities and providing enhanced visibility in every district. This is through the use of social media, Police Connect and frequent face-to-face meetings. Additionally, the officers are supporting and increasing the use of Special Constables, Police Cadets, Police Support Volunteers, Neighbourhood Watch and Community Speed Watch schemes.
The seven officers are:
• PC Emily Carter – King’s Lynn and West Norfolk
PC Jim Squires said “We have just launched this initiative and need your help! “We are looking for a community project for each of the seven districts, which could do with a little help. “If you have a village hall that needs a re-paint or an over-grown garden that needs tidying up, we want to come along and help for the day. “The Police Cadets are also available to come and help if it requires more man-power.”
The closing date for people to send their ‘Community SOS’ request in is Tuesday 31 October 2017. The Engagement Officers will then choose one project to help with in each district and will contact the coordinator directly to arrange dates and times. If you have a project suitable for this, please send a brief, which is no more than 500 words, along with any pictures to: [email protected] by the closing date.
Police are appealing for information after a grade 2 listed red phone box was stolen from The Street in Euston in the early hours of Saturday morning, 19th August, possibly between 12am & 2am.
