On July 4th 2016, the role of the Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) changed. This means that there will no longer be a specific PCSO for the Hanover/Elm Grove or Pankhurst area. Instead there will be a team of PCSO’s that will be deployed as problems arise.
With the introduction of this new role PCSO’s will no longer attend individual residential and Local Action Team meetings.
The Central Neighbourhood Policing Inspector Brian McCarthy will instead be attending the meetings for the chairs of the LAT’s.
Crime figures for individual areas can be found centrally online at https://www.police.uk/ from here if you click the ‘your neighbourhood link’ and type the area postcode, or area name, into the search bar and the crime figures will be shown.
