Have your say
So let's move the police station from the centre of town where all the crime is to the outskirts!
It's only a matter of time before we see perspex barriers in place, to protect shop workers and there stock. I certainly dont want to see that, but deep social problems in Central Ward need to be addressed. All the shops, that have so far been targeted, surround this area, where are the foot patrols!!!
