Barrow Police online Meeting

Posted by StreetSafe on December 10, 2010

Barrow police are holding an online meeting this week to provide local residents with the chance to ‘chat’ with some of the area’s top cops from the comfort of their own homes.

By logging onto http://www.cumbria.police.uk/barrowmeeting on Thursday 16th December between 6pm to 8pm, residents will be given a chance to let their virtual voices be heard by taking part in an online meeting with their local inspector.

At the same time as raising questions to local Inspector David Bosson about issues in their local area or sharing any concerns they may have, South Cumbria’s top cop, Chief Superintendent Paul Kennedy, will also be in the hot seat and able to answer questions, provide an update on future policing in the area and share advice.

Neighbourhood Policing Team Inspector David Bosson said: “Community meetings are great ways for residents to put forward their views on what police should be doing and how, but it’s hard to arrange a time and venue that enables everybody to come along.

“Online web chats have been piloted recently by the Constabulary and have generated positive responses from local people who get the chance to talk to local police officers in a convenient, simple way – without having to leave their homes or families.

“It provides people who don’t like to speak out in public, or who don’t want to ask us questions out on the street to speak out anonymously and hear our honest answers.

“I’d urge as many people as possible to log on so that we get a true reflection of what the communities of Barrow think and feel. If you live outside of Barrow but would like to use the opportunity to ask a question or share your views feel free to log on and join in.”
