Time to send a Message

In the last week, I have nominated a Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) for an award, for his work in Shepton, that has help build the new BMX track at West Shepton Playing fields, reducing anti social behaviour at the Football club.

The Town Council also agree to nominate another PCSO for her outstanding work with our community.

The Shepton Partners And Communities Together (PACT) since it's inception has made advances in community issues; whether speeding traffic, anti social behaviour or facilities for the community. The PCSO's are in the vanguard of this work.

The other Saturday I was in the Town Centre around 10pm where the PCSO team were handling a vocal group of young people, confiscating alcohol from those youths.

PCSOs play an important and valued job within our Town, so for the Conservatives at County Hall to consider cutting £129,000 from the PCSO budget could effect the Town.

David Hanson MP the Home Office minister responsible for policing, shares these concerns, speaking in the Houses of Parliament this week he said "he was disappointed if the County Council was to reduce their contribution", he went on to say that PCSOs play an important role in reducing crime and anti social behaviour.

If you share my concerns, I am sure your conservative County Councillor, Mrs Robinson would be delighted to hear from you.
