Midlothian police officers set to go local

Police are urging Midlothian people to join them in helping to improve the quality of life for residents in local communities.

Officers will be holding a number of ‘Environmental Visual Audits’ this autumn, where members of the public are invited to help identify issues affecting the local community.

These issues can vary from antisocial behaviour, crimes of violence to dog fouling and vandalism.

Local officers will meet with members of the community to identify key locations, and will carry out visual inspections of those locations with local people who are being invited to attend.

There will be six audits in total, one for each council ward, and following each audit police officers and partners will work together to find solutions to help resolve the issues that have been identified.
