Meeting cancelled

Due to Coronavirus I am cancelling the Dunbar CAPP meeting that was due to take place on Tuesday 31st March and shall not be attending any community council meetings.

As per the letter attached from Supt MacInnes all police attendance at such meetings is temporarily suspended and I shall be back in touch when we are a position to return to business as normal.

In the meantime please don’t hesitate in making contact with any issues you have affecting you or your communities that you think I may be able to assist with.

Regards

Police Priorities for your Community from 2020 – Have your say

As the last local police plan comes to an end, there is a fresh one being hatched.

The previous Dunbar & East Linton Plan is here and here.

During the last plan period the community’s greatest concerns were antisocial behaviour; people using and dealing drugs in the area; and speeding and inconsiderate driving.
