Share your views on Policing at the Westmorland Show
Cumbria’s Deputy Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner (DPFCC), Mike Johnson, is encouraging people to come along to chat with him and raise any policing and fire concerns they may have, at the Westmorland Show on 13 and 14 September.
The DPFCC will be at the showground both days with Get Safe Online, an international organisation that the Office of the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner (OPFCC) commission to provide local people with information on how to keep themselves safe online. The Get Safe Online stand will be situated next to the Cumbria Constabulary and Cumbria Fire and Rescue Service (CFRS).
Speaking on the event, DPFCC Mike Johnson, said: “This will be my first county show as Deputy Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner and I’m looking forward to speaking to members of the public and finding their views on Cumbria Fire and Rescue Service and also the Constabulary.
“I’ll be at the Show with Get Safe Online who will be sharing key information, advice and tips on how people can best protect themselves from falling victim to a cyber-crime. I would encourage anyone who is worried about their own or their families’ safety online and have a chat with the team.
“For those who cannot make it to the show to speak to the Get Safe Online team, their website is full of information: www.getsafeonline.org.
“Members from the OPFCC will also be at the show finding out what the public’s policing priorities are, so if anyone would like to share their views on this, please come along and let us know.
“As a rural county, engaging with our rural communities is incredibly important. The Westmorland Show provides me with the opportunity to speak to those who live and work in our beautiful countryside, about how we, as Police and Fire, best serve our communities.
“I want to encourage anyone who would like to raise their views and concerns to come and have a chat with me at the Show.”
