THIS edition of White Horse News launches a new series of features on policing in Westbury.
White Horse News and the Westbury station of Wiltshire Police are working together to bring readers the latest news and developments on the issues that affect residents in the town.
Over the next few editions, the features will focus on some of the major issues that the town faces, investigate how the police are combating problems, and see what they are doing to help the people of Westbury.
Inspector David Minty, who covers Westbury, Warminster, Tisbury and Mere said, “It’s a way of us linking with the community regularly. It will explain what we do and give people a better understanding of how the police operate in the area.”
This edition will start the series by looking at anti-social behaviour, an issue that police in Westbury have been working hard to address in response to recent problems.
Following Westbury’s first “Bluez ‘n’ Zuz” event, this edition also looks at what the police are doing for youth in the town. Other topics to be covered in future editions include burglaries, car crime, and rural crime.
White Horse News will also keep readers informed with an update on developments on cases and issues in the area. There will also be a chance to find out more about the policemen and women serving the town, with the profile of a different local officer every week.
