Last week, representatives from various partner agencies and communities were invited to Preston Police Station for a glimpse into the world of local policing.  

Over 20 partners from health, trading standards, housing, education, and community groups gathered at the networking event, which outlined the priorities for local policing across Preston and gave an insight into the work that our local policing teams carry out on a daily basis.

Partners were also given the opportunity to hear from Chief Superintendent Stasia Osiowy and Superintendent Steve Rides, as well as the Local Policing and Safer Neighbourhoods teams to discuss how to continue to work together to help keep our communities safe.

Ch. Supt. Stasia Osiowy, said: “We are absolutely committed to local policing which is at the heart of effective policing across Preston.

“Last week’s event was crucial in continuing to build strong relationships with partners and stakeholders and I would like to thank those who attended. 

“We will continue to work together to identify and address issues earlier, prevent more crime and harm, and keep people safe.”
