Kentish Express Ashford & District - - FRONT PAGE -

PO­LICE have started to hold ‘street brief­ings’ in Ash­ford to pro­vide res­i­dents with in­for­ma­tion and to al­low them to dis­cuss prob­lems in their area. The first ses­sions were held last week at the Singleton Cen­tre. Sgt Jeff Lawrence of the Neigh­bour­hood Unit was hop­ing for a larger turn out this week when the brief­ing was held at Hill­brow Lane, South Ash­ford, last night (Wed­nes­day). Sgt Lawrence said: “Ash­ford is the first area in south Kent to un­der­take Street Brief­ings. Al­though it is early days, we an­tic­i­pate that this will be­come an­other per­ma­nent way that the pub­lic will be able to meet and speak to us about anti-so­cial be­hav­iour in their ar­eas. “We put leaflets through let­ter boxes and put up posters in lo­cal shops to alert res­i­dents to the brief­ings.”
