MP visits officers

Eastwood MP Gloria De Piero congratulated the town’s police officers on falling crime rates last week.

The Ashfield and Eastwood MP met the area inspector Craig Berry and had a walk about the town with PCSO Theresa Billington.

She said “The police are working hard to tackle the problem of anti-social behaviour and the problems of kids not having enough to do. Crime is down 15 per cent locally and I’d like to commend Craig and Theresa for holding meetings and knocking on residents’ doors.”
