PACT stands for ‘Police and Communities Together’, it is a chance for the community to meet with their local PCSO and talk about issues they may be suffering from themselves or any local problems which are affecting the community. In addition it gives the PCSO chance to talk to the community about current issues in the area or anything they think you as the community should be aware about. For example some topics which have been raised in the meetings are regarding speeding, which has resulted in a Community Speed watch group being set up, parking issues which have been reported to the council, and anti-social behavior. It is a great opportunity to get to know your local PCSO and work together with them to make your community a safer and happy place to live. PCSO SWALES 8068 will be leaflet dropping posters about the PACT meetings to residents in Llanfaes.
