The Constabulary is to hold a special ‘Police and Communities Together (PACT) for Eastern Europeans living in Preston.
The event is primarily aimed at those from the Polish, Russian and Lithuanian communities – with volunteers on hand to translate – and it will allow attendees to talk about any crime or safety issues with local officers.
It will take place on 30 September at 13.00 at St Maria Goretti Church, Gamull Lane in Ribbleton following the Sunday service.

The constabulary regularly holds PACT events throughout Preston including meetings aimed at specific groups such as rural, student and minority communities.
PC Paul Geldard, from Preston neighbourhood policing, said: “We know that different communities all have varying needs in regard to personal safety and crime reduction and this is one of the reasons we have decided to put on this event.
“I hope to see as many people as possible who live in Preston, but are originally from Eastern Europe, attend as this will give them a great opportunity to discuss the policing issues which matters most to them.”
