Police contact points where members of the public can have their say on the issues that matter to them could spring up across Fenland after a successful trial.
Cambridgeshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner Sir Graham Bright says more police contact points will be rolled out following the success of a pilot scheme at Sainsbury’s in Bretton.
Sir Graham said: “My Outreach Worker and the local policing team have been on hand at Sainsbury’s since May to deal with issues or concerns that the public have raised with them.
“Within the first 24 hours of the Bretton contact point launching we had seen and spoken to many more members of the public than some of our smaller enquiry offices deal with in a whole week or even a month.
“People have really taken an interest in the pilot and I am sure there are lots of things we can build on and do even better when others are opened.

“It’s all about going out and being seen right in the centre of local communities at places, like supermarkets, where there is already considerable public presence.
“I am committed to opening more in the coming months.”
