MORE police beat surgeries have been launched in Portishead.

Officers and PCSOs are now available to speak to the public on a regular basis at Portishead Library.

The surgeries are held at the Harbour Road building on Tuesdays between 10am and noon, Thursdays from 2-4pm and on Saturdays from 1-3pm.

Sergeant Jim Robinson said: “Residents are invited to come and discuss any local concerns or issues with the local neighbourhood team at our beat surgeries where we can also give crime reduction advice and information.”

The new surgeries are in addition to those held in the mobile police station at a variety of locations in the town several times each month.

The additional surgeries are part of an initiative to demonstrate that police officers and PCSOs will remain in the heart of the community, despite the relocation of the police team from the station in South Avenue to the Valley Road HQ in January.

Anyone wanting to contact the police by telephone for non-emergencies can call them on the 101 number.
