Coppers discuss safety issues over a brew at Asda
1:10pm Sunday 22nd September 2013 in News
INFORMAL chats over a cuppa with a community support officer are now available in Leigh Asda’s foyer.
As part of Cuppa with a Copper, a new four-weekly event, PCSOs and community engagement officers from Wigan and Leigh Housing (WALH) will be stationed in the foyer to share a brew and swap views with the community.
Leigh PCSO Les Welch said: “We do a lot of targeted work and surgeries in the community, but this is something a little bit more informal.
“We’re here all day to talk with shoppers about whatever crime and community safety issues they are concerned about and offer some hints and tips on crime prevention measures.”
The store, in Atherleigh Way, has given the PCSOs use of the foyer space on a Thursday every four weeks.
