THE future of rural policing will be the focus of an event next month.
Representatives from the Hampshire Constabulary Country Watch teams and local and national rural organisations and businesses will be available to provide information relating to rural policing at Sparsholt College, Winchester on Friday, May 6.
Hampshire Constabulary Assistant Chief Constable Laura Nicholson will talk about the force’s plans for rural policing.
Chief Inspector Rachel Farrell, who has conducted a review of rural policing for the force, said: ‘This is a fantastic opportunity to find out more about what Hampshire Constabulary and rural businesses and organisations are doing to keep communities safe, and for our residents in rural locations to meet local contacts and find out how they can get involved.
‘We have been working very hard to put in place a plan to provide an improved service to these communities.’
