A new meeting format for the King's Lynn Safer Neighbourhood Action Panel (SNAP) starts this month with a drop-in session at the King's Court council offices on Tuesday 7 June 2016 from 11am to 1pm.
Inspector Nathan Franklin from Norfolk Constabulary said: "We are trialling this new approach because the bi-monthly panel meetings in King's Lynn have not been as well attended as the meetings in Downham and Hunstanton.
"We are committed to engaging with the community and picking up on low level nuisance issues in the community that can have a real impact on people's lives. These drop-in sessions will be more frequent and take place at a time of day which we hope will be more convenient for the majority of people. They're a great opportunity for people to come and talk to us about any neighbourhood niggles they have and we might be able to help them nip things in the bud before they become a real problem."
At the sessions people can speak with a council or police representative about issues in their neighbourhood. Their issue will be logged along with any actions to be carried out.
The King's Lynn Safer Neighbourhood drop-in sessions will take place on the first Tuesday of every month, at the King's Court council offices, Chapel Street, King's Lynn, from 11am to 1pm.
Anyone who cannot attend the monthly drop-in sessions can raise issues directly with the Safer Neighbourhood team by contacting kingslynnSNT@norfolk.pnn.police.uk or calling the non emergency number 101 (calls cost 15p). Alternatively, call Sue Payne at Sue.Payne@West-norfolk.gov.uk or telephone 01553 616554.
The trial for the King's Lynn Safer Neighbourhood drop-in sessions will be reviewed after 6 months.
