POLICE community support officers will be hosting monthly drop-in sessions at Rotherham Hospital from next month (March) after a successful trial period.
Officers will be on hand to talk about neighbourhood policing and offer crime reduction advice from the community corner area which is in the main entrance of the Moorgate hospital.
The first session will be on Thursday, March 15, from 11am to 1pm.
Insp Jenny Lax said: “Our drop-in sessions within the hospital launched earlier this year and the first two were really well attended.
“By hosting them within the hospital, we are hoping to speak to people from across the community, from visitors to hospital staff, who may not ordinarily have the opportunity to come and chat to us.
“We are on hand to address any neighbourhood issues, from hate crime to antisocial behaviour, but also offer free crime prevention advice whether it’s around protecting your belongings, burglary or any other crime type.”
The following session will be on Wednesday, April 18, bookings are not required.
