Instances of anti-social behaviour in Moray will top the discussion list when Moray’s MSP visits Elgin Police Station today.
Richard Lochhead has said that is a major issue from community representations and one that he will take up when he meets Chief Inspector Willie Findlay for talks.
The MSP has said that Forres and Lossiemouth communities in particular have raised the issue of anti-social behaviour, adding that he is keen to gain more understanding on the scale of the problem in these communities and throughout the region.
He will also seek clarity from the Chief Inspector on what issues have been identified as being the local priorities and the challenges that officers face in keeping Moray’s communities safe.
“I’m looking forward to meeting the Chief Inspector to hear what issues have been identified as policing priorities in Moray, and what challenges local officers currently face in working to tackle crime in our communities,” the MSP said.
He continued: “Local policing and keeping our streets safe is, I know, an issue that matters greatly to people in Moray, and it is important that as local MSP I meet regularly with the police to keep abreast of issues affecting my constituents.
“Prior to arranging my meeting with the Chief Inspector, concerned constituents raised the matter of anti-social behaviour in their communities with me, and I will be raising these concerns with Willie Findlay on their behalf.”
