WEARSIDERS are being reminded they don’t have to brave the cold to quiz their beat bobbies.
Instead, they can log online and fire questions at officers during the online police meetings. Sunderland Central’s takes place tomorrow.
Inspector Neil Craig, pictured, who will host the meeting, said: “We know most people are too busy to attend a traditional meeting but are still interested to hear what we’re doing in their area.
“By hosting an online version we can give them the opportunity to join in and tell us what it is that affects them, by encouraging people to get in touch.
“The meetings are easy to navigate and anyone wanting to join can set themselves a reminder so they don’t forget when it is.
“By encouraging people to get in touch, and making it as easy as possible for them to do so, we can better understand what it is they want from their Neighbourhood Policing Team.”
Tuesday’s meeting runs from 7pm to 9pm and can be accessed by visiting www.northumbria.police.uk.
