This week (23 Nov) a promotional campaign has started encouraging people to sign up to Community Messaging using radio, leaflets/posters and social media. They are keen that people who have cctv at their home or business, sign up and add the cctv owner/operator box so that they can be contacted quickly if help is needed with an investigation or looking for a missing person. A leaflet will be published and our Clerk will place a copy on our noticeboards. Poster pdf is below.
