Councillors and Citizens on Patrol

This is an initiative to tackle the perception of crime, strengthen community spirit and resolve community issues. This involves councillors and local residents leading high profile and visible patrols.

The idea behind this is to get back to traditional community values of local people looking out for each other. Patrols take place in a different part of the community within the Normanton Ward. We walk, talk, greet and listen, dealing with issues we come across while hopefully having some fun at the same time.
