Summertime '˜meet your police' events taking place across Lincolnshire

Lincolnshire Police will hold public engagements events across the county this summer.

Lincolnshire Police news.

The events, which the force says have been highly popular in the past, have given hundreds of people the opportunity to talk to the police and vice versa.

John Horton, the engagement and campaigns officer who organises the events, said: “In many respects these events formalise what officers and PCSOs do every working day but provide opportunities for more in-depth chats and interactions.

“Although the content and structure of each event vary depending on availability of officers, most will feature EMOpSS (East Midlands Operational Support Service) vehicles, an opportunity to speak to senior officers and the police and crime commissioner, volunteer recruitment and crime prevention advice.

“Like the highly popular open days, these sessions each provide a high profile opportunity to engage with local people.”

Public engagement events will take place as follows:

* 28 July, Sheepgate Car Park, Spalding

* 4 August, ASDA, Grantham

* 17 August, Pier Field, Skegness (Part of the 999 day)

* 18 August, Woodthorpe Garden Centre, Alford

* 25 August, Sainsbury’s, Sleaford

* 31 August, St Marks Shopping Centre, Lincoln

All events run approximately 10am to 3pm and are subject to change for operational reasons or inclement weather.
