Meeting to set up community watch scheme for Bootle

A meeting to set up a community watch scheme in Bootle has been organised.

It follows two burglaries in Bootle and Millom recently, which police are investigating.

Copeland MP Trudy Harrison has set up the meeting which will be attended by a member of her staff and local police.

It takes place on Tuesday, July 2, in Captain Shaw’s School hall, 6-7pm, and everyone is welcome to attend.

There will be guidance and information from police on security measures which can be taken and also advice on how to set up a community scheme.

Mrs Harrison said: “We are a close knit community and such crimes affect us all, particularly when thieves target our most vulnerable residents.  Cumbria Police has stepped up its presence in the village and I’m pleased they will be attending the meeting to help advise on how to avoid becoming a victim of burglary, and how vigilance through a community watch scheme can really help.”
