Do you know who your local Neighbourhood Policing Teams (NPTs) are?

Have you ever worked with your NPT to address a local concern?

What would you like to see from your NPT in the future?

Now you can find out more about your local policing teams at the fourth in a summer season of live online webchats tonight.

People are invited to ask questions, or watch the hour-long discussion, which starts at 7pm, via the West Yorkshire Police website http://www.westyorkshire.police.uk/nptwebchat

You can visit the page now to set up an automatic reminder via email.

Taking part is Chief Insp Mark McManus, Force Performance Improvement Unit, and Chris Joyce, Force Crime Prevention Officer, who said they were looking forward to answering questions from the public.

Chief Insp McManus said: “Neighbourhood Policing Teams work with communities and partners to jointly identify local priorities and tackle local issues.

“Making our communities safer, and feeling safer, is a priority across the Force and we want to hear from residents about their involvement with local teams and how we can improve the service we provide on the ground.”

The previous webchats in the series looked at drugs issues and becoming a police volunteer, and were very successful, with one attracting 160 questions.

Future topics lined up, all with a 7pm start, include: Monday, July 22, Euro-cylinder Burglary and Monday, August 5, Bringing Offenders to Justice.

The discussions use a free Cover it Live discussion system, already regularly used and established by West Yorkshire Neighbourhood Policing Teams for their ePack online community meetings.
