Police consultation

by Isle of Man Listing Owner 6th March 2006
A lack of respect for authority has spread to the Island from the UK.

Speaking at the end of several meetings of the police consultative forum, Home Affairs Minister John Shimmin said whilst the Island was still a very safe place his Department had to work with police to reassure the public and ensure that they receive the sort of service which is required and wanted.

The police consultative forum was set up in order to raise awareness of the challenges faced by officers and also to try and improve relations between police and the public.

The latest of the meetings was held last night (Sun) in Willaston, although there will be more in the lower Douglas area to allow people there to express their views.

Mr Shimmin (pictured) says there will be a shift to more community based policing:
