Police, firefighters and paramedics in Carlton and Porchester will meet Nottinghamshire Police and Crime Commissioner Paddy Tipping next week in the latest of his of community visits.
The PCC will join multiagency partners including Gedling Borough Councillors, as well as Sergeant Luke Todd, for the “walkabout” event, which will take place between 10am and 12pm on Thursday 4th October.
The event is part of a series of community walkabouts planned by the PCC to get to know Nottinghamshire’s diverse communities better and deliver effective solutions to local problems.
The walkabout, which is open to the public to attend, brings together key agencies to identify opportunities for joint action.
Mr Tipping said: “We know from experience that getting out and about in our communities and meeting local people helps us to build up a picture of the problems which blight our county and ensure everyone who has a part to play in solving them is onboard.”
“Our emergency services workers are at the sharp end of public safety and their experiences will be useful in helping us understand the resources needed to make people safer. I’m also looking forward to meeting local people to find out how we can make life better for everyone.”
The event will start at Carlton Ambulance Station in Manor Road Carlton (NG4 3AY) at 10am where a tour of the station facilities will take place before the PCC meets the team.
The group will then move on to the Fire Station front counter before embarking on a walk along the Mapperley Top/Porchester area with PC Flint and PCSO Smith where they will meet and greet members of the public along the way.
Finally, they will return to the station for any questions.
