Police talks changing times on the road

Going mobile: Lincolnshire Police will tour the country to address people’s questions on the latest policing changes.

Lincolnshire Police will be taking to the road this summer to talk to local people from across the county and address the latest strategy changes in the force.

Similar events were held last year and helped to increase people’s confidence as the police explained their work and the responsibilities they have.

The summer activities begin in Skegness on July 13 and are coming to Lincoln City Square on July 16.

Deputy Chief Constable Neil Rhodes says the events should be helpful and informative: “These events are a great opportunity for us to discuss our services and the changes we have made recently to Lincolnshire Police to make sure we continue to deliver excellent results in very challenging times.”

The days will run from 9.30am to 4pm and will include a visit from Lincolnshire Police’s Bobby the Bear as well as dog handlers, the roads policing unit and the diving team.

Other attractions include a crash car simulator and a police quad bike.

DCC Rhodes explains that the police force is making “good progress in reducing crime across the county”. However, they are also keen to “reduce the fear of crime and get public perception in line with reality”.

Where the events will take place across the summer:

  • Skegness Tesco Superstore – Wednesday July 13
  • Lincoln City Square – Saturday July 16
  • Boston Market Place – Wednesday July 20
  • Stamford Red Lion Square – Friday July 29
