East Midlands Police on French Television.

By Ben Aulakh

An East Midlands police force will be appearing on French television as part of a documentary on neighbourhood policing.

The film – which compares policing in the United Kingdom with that of Germany and France – will be shown in France later on this year.

Journalists, Pauline Planté and Stéphane Correa spent two days filming and met up with senior officers at Police Headquarters in Enderby.

Chief Inspector Nick Glynn from the Force's Operational Support Department said: “I was approached by the editor of a French TV station following a presentation I gave at a conference in Paris attended by organisations from Europe.

“There isn’t a Neighbourhood Policing approach in France so the television editor asked if they could come and film with Leicestershire Constabulary.”

“We have been recognised for many years as one of the leading forces for pioneering and implementing the Neighbourhood Policing.”

At the heart of this form of policing is encouraging members of the public to help in ensuring the safety of their community

Any issues that affect a community are discussed by representatives from the Police, Council, Fire Service, crime reduction agencies, voluntary groups and local residents who all work together to resolve the problem.

Chief Insp Glynn added, “Neighbourhood policing is vital in providing an effective resolution to public concerns on reducing crime, disorder and antisocial behaviour.
