RESIDENTS can learn more about work being done to keep their communities safe thanks to a newsletter being delivered to their door.

The Safer Portsmouth Partnership, made up of organisations including the police, Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service and Portsmouth City Council, is delivering information to every home in the city this week.

The letter includes information on what police have been doing to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour, how to get involved in neighbourhood forums and police beat surgeries, the work of Hampshire Probation Trust, Portsmouth City Council’s anti-social behaviour unit and community wardens.

Chief Superintendent Nigel Hindle, who is in charge of policing in Portsmouth, said: ‘I urge everyone to take an active interest in their community.

‘People can help by telling us about all crime and anti-social behaviour, they can volunteer as a special constable or support staff or set up a Neighbourhood Watch scheme.’
