PROGRESS IS LAUGH­ABLE

Rossendale Free Press - - Your Views -

I WOULD like to re­spond to Po­lice and Crime Com­mis­sioner’s com­ments back­ing the clo­sure of po­lice sta­tions.

I emailed the po­lice to let them know about drug deal­ing be­ing done openly from a house, first time was 12 months ago, sec­ond time a cou­ple of weeks ago. First time no re­sponse. Sec­ond time an email ask­ing for the de­tails of “the ve­hi­cle be­ing used to de­liver the drugs?” and “what type of drug is it ?”.

I emailed back to re­quest a direct phone num­ber to speak to the of­fi­cer, only to be told his “sig­nal was poor on his duty mo­bile” and to send info via email? I had al­ready done that. Po­lice in the 21st cen­tury? Don’t make me laugh.

Makes me feel so much safer to know we have pro­gressed so well. Name and ad­dress sup­plied
