Teenagers invited to have their say on policing in Darlington at event next week
1:42pm Friday 26th July 2013 in News
YOUNG people in Darlington are invited to discuss their views on the town and its police at a special event next week.
A Junior Police and Communities Together (Pact) meeting will be held next Wednesday (July 31) at McDonald’s, in Northgate, from 6pm.
The meeting is the first of its kind in Darlington and is open to all 13 and 18-year-olds to give them a chance to have their say on policing in the town and the town centre itself.
PCSO Alice Turner said: “We appreciate they (young people) may not feel like they can approach us when we’re on foot patrol so it’s an opportunity for them to let us know what they like in the town so we can build on this but also what they dislike so we can look into making changes where possible.
“We’re expecting to cover a range of issues such as antisocial behaviour, facilities in town and what’s available at the moment, but also their expectations of us as their neighbourhood beat team.”
