Police (Peterborough)

Volume 455: debated on Tuesday 16 January 2007

The petition has 1,000 signatures. It reads as follows:

The Petition of residents of Werrington, Peterborough, and others,

Declares the Petitioners' desire for a more visible Police presence in the Werrington Centre, Peterborough, to reduce the level of violence, intimidation and vandalism, which Peterborough's otherwise extremely capable and dedicated officers are struggling to prevent due to the minimal resources available to them.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urge the Secretary of State for the Home Department to use his powers to provide a more visible Police presence in the aforesaid location, thus helping to make it a safer and more pleasant place to shop and work.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.

To lie upon the Table.
