Stevenage police go virtual

A NEW way of tackling crime is being launched with a virtual meeting between police and public.

Stevenage safer neighbourhood officers are going online to discuss crime issues in the town with residents in a bid to improve communication and policing priorities for the community.

Pc Hal Palmer, who is hosting the meeting with Pc Jen Pulley, said: “We understand that not everyone has the time or ability to attend local policing meetings for various reasons, for example they may be taking care of children or have mobility issues.

“This is a fantastic way of using technology to reach as many people as possible – and for residents to talk to us from the comfort of their own homes.”

The meeting will take place between 7pm and 9pm on Thursday, November 17.
