Working together with our partner agencies, Lancashire Police continue to do all we can to tackle the potential causes of anti-social behaviour and crime. We are spending a week in these areas which will hopefully make a real difference in working towards a better community and improving the lives of residents.
“Spending time in these areas will allow us to try and identify particular issues and reduce crime rates as well as reassuring residents that Officers are working hard to tackle any problems.”
