Police issue update to residents on progress

HOMES across E District’s four policing areas - Craigavon, Armagh, Banbridge and Newry and Mourne, will receive a personal letter from PSNI District Commander, Chief Superintendent Alasdair Robinson, over the next few weeks.

The letter will accompany a leaflet containing an update from Chief Constable Matt Baggott and an overview of policing initiatives and successes in the local area.

This is the second update in relation to the Policing Commitments which were launched last year.

Chief Constable Baggott provides an update on how the Police Service of Northern Ireland is delivering on the Policing Commitments, stating: “Crime in Northern Ireland is currently at it’s lowest for 14 years, with the level of burglary and robbery also falling.

He added: “We know that good policing is essential to everyone’s future because safety and confidence helps employment, tourism and peace building. We will confront serious crime whilst still being there to deal with day to day concerns or emergencies.

“We will provide policing for everyone, whatever the problem, because that is what the people of Northern Ireland expect.”

E District Commander, Chief Superintendent Alasdair Robinson also reflects on the decrease in crime in E District and the work that is going on throughout neighbourhoods in all four areas to build relationships and tackle the issues that matter to you.

The leaflet will be delivered to each household over the coming weeks and will provide a snapshot of the service being delivered by police on a daily basis in your area
