One used wrote: “What can you do about parking on yellow lines and the pavement around St Andrews school every school day?”
While another commented: “May I ask what the plan is to stop the increasing amount of E-scooters on the roads in Fulwood and Preston.”
“Hello Preston Police, what are you doing about the anti social behaviour in Preston city centre?,” a third asked.
Addressing the Q&A session, a spokesperson from the police said that the sessions mean that they are able to act on any issues raised.
They said: “We conduct a number of activities to enable members of the public to engage with our local policing teams and ask questions or raise concerns about their local area.
“These include things like PACT meetings and Coffee with a Cop events. Q&A sessions on our social media channels give members of the public another opportunity to do this and we are able to act upon some of the issues raised to us, updating patrol plans and directing neighbourhood area officers and PCSOs to address those issues.”
