Commissioner Praises Community at Silloth
Police and Crime Commissioner and Cumbria Constabulary held a joint public meeting in conjunction with Silloth Town Council.
The meeting was an opportunity for members of the community to speak to the Commissioner and the Constabulary about their concerns and future policing requirements.
Police and Crime Commissioner, Peter McCall said: “It was a really constructive meeting. It was helpful for the Constabulary to talk through recent operations and explain some of the outcomes and how these were reached.
“I admire the public spirit in Silloth and indeed across Cumbria. The people attending the meeting were rightly proud of how safe Silloth is and are passionate about keeping it that way. I often talk about ‘we not they’ and it was a good example in Silloth where this is working well.”
Inspector Richard Smillie said:
“It was a good opportunity to talk to residents and explain the rationale behind some police and partner decisions.
“Silloth has the benefit of a PCSO called Pete Nichol who spends time in the local community working with people and dealing with any issues that arise.
“I am pleased that PCSO Nichol will be working alongside PCSO Hannah Donaughee and this will allow for extra cover in the Silloth area. I would urge the community to continue letting us know when issues are arising and that way we can all work together to keep Silloth and surrounding areas safe.”
