Community Forum Discuss Policing

Recent appointments to Newtownabbey's District Policing Partnership (DPP) will be among the issues being discussed at a meeting of a Glengormley-based community policing group this week.

Established under the auspices of the DPP, the Antrim Line Community Policing Forum, meeting in The Pavilion, Carnmoney Road on Thursday 3 April (7.30pm), will also hear from the PSNI's Sector Commander, Inspector Julie Blain on various initiatives to promote better, more community sensitive policing in the area.

Members will then have the chance to put informal questions to the police officer, based on her report, and in response to any queries raised from within the Antrim Line electoral ward, from which the Forum membership is drawn.

Members of the public are also welcome to the meeting should they have a particular issue to raise on policing matters relevant to the greater Glengormley area.
