Residents share concerns with police

Drug dealing, graffiti and antisocial behaviour were some of the concerns raised by residents when they met with the police's Central Community Action Team, who held an outreach clinic just off Parsons Road, Pembroke, on Wednesday night.

Pc Arthur Dill and Pc Derek Simmons received a good response from the residents, many from the Deepdale area, with some hoping to assist and form a community group for their neighbourhood, Acting Sergeant Krishna Singh said.

The clinics offer a chance for residents to get to know their community officers. Normally one officer is assigned per parish, but Pembroke is afforded two because of its large population.
