From the middle of January 2017, Kinross Police Office have a new
designated Community Policing Team.
Sergeant Nichola Forrester is the new Community Sergeant along with
Constables Dougie Stapleton and Atholl Spalding.
The new policing model in South Perthshire, including Kinross, allows
for locally based community officers to be visible in the area they
are dedicated to, engaging with the community.
Constables Stapleton and Spalding will be primarily tasked with identifying
repeat issues and tackling them with problem solving approaches. This
will include focused activities within the community including dedicated
Hi-Visibility foot patrols, speeding issues, neighbourhood disputes
and building long-term relationships with the local schools, community
groups and Community Councils.
Constables Stapleton and Spalding will be holding Community Surgeries
at various locations locally during the forthcoming months where members
of the community can meet them and discuss any local Policing issues
they may have.
The new Community team has a wealth of not only Police service but
community policing experience and are happy to discuss any issues.
They can be contacted direct via 101 or via the already set up community
e-mail for Kinross. (taysidekinross-shireCPT@scotland.pnn.police.uk)
