POLICE have set up a number of surgeries for the public to express their concerns within the community,

The ‘community conversations’ scheme has been set up by the force to encourage the public to ‘drop-in’ and speak to the police.

The sessions give the public a chance to express their views on crime.

Copeland Neighbourhood Policing Team will be conducting the sessions at various locations across the borough, including Millom, Egremont and Whitehaven.

In a post on its Twitter page, Copeland police said: "Please come along to discuss your own, or your wider community's, crime and disorder concerns with representatives from your dedicated local Neighbourhood Policing Team.”

More details can be found on the Copeland police Twitter and Facebook pages.
