SHOP owners and customers in Clay Cross will be able to chat to their local police officers during a series of mobile surgeries.

Officers from the Clay Cross Safer Neighbourhood Team will be carrying out the ‘Shop Drop’ street surgeries in the town centre from Thursday, March 8.

The mobile surgeries will see local officers and PCSOs visiting all the shops on the High Street and Market Street speaking to shoppers and owners about any community concerns they have.

They will spend time inside each shop and the days the surgeries are held on will vary so the officers can meet different shop workers and customers.

The surgeries initially ran last year and due to positive feedback from the community they are being restarted this year.

Each surgery will last for around two hours and times and dates will be posted in all local shops.

Police Community Support Officer Andrew Cocking said: “These surgeries proved very popular last time we ran them as they give people the chance to talk to us without having to take time out of their daily routine.

“Many people don’t have time to come to a formal meeting so this form of interaction with their local officers is ideal.”
