Dated: 21 Feb 2012


Residents in Wallsend are invited to make the most of their extra day this year and visit an online meeting with local officers.

Police are hosting the event on Wednesday, February 29, from 6.30pm to 8.30pm. People are invited to go online and ask questions and get crime prevention advice as well as finding out more about their local neighbourhood team.

Wallsend Temporary Inspector Phil McConville said: "We hope local people will join us online to find out more about how we police their community.  Residents can stay for the entire meeting and share the views of other participants, or just spend a few minutes to ask a specific question.

"We're looking forward to our leap year meeting and want to encourage people to spend time with us online."
