People in Corby will be asked for their views on the issues they think their local police officers should be tackling.

Inspector Julie Mead, the sector commander for Corby, is keen to find out more about the issues that are important to people living in and around the town so they can focus on what really matters to them.

Insp Mead’s officers will be heading out next month to speak to residents and find out more before looking at how they tackle the issues raised.

She said: “I want to give the community a voice.

“We will probably start at Asda or somewhere with high footfall.

“Violence is my priority and I want to see what people’s perception, comments and views are.

“You can make lots of assumptions but you have to hear what the community says.”

The days, known as take action days, are due to take place in Corby on August 1, 2 and 3.

Insp Mead added: “I want to take us to the community, which is what we are going to do.

“I have limited staff so I want to be able to use them in the best way possible so I don’t want to be making assumptions.”

Further details about the forthcoming take action days, including the locations, will be released nearer the time.
