Residents are being invited to an open forum to discuss crime and policing in Keighley.

The Keighley Safer Neighbourhood Team will host the gathering at Central Hall in Alice Street from 7pm to 8.30pm on Monday.

Police sergeant Alex Alderson will outline local crime issues and what the future holds for policing in the town.

Neighbourhood Watch co-ordinator Catherine Winn and members of local Watch groups will explain how people can get involved in existing groups or set up their own. There will also be crime prevention tips and demonstrations of low-priced equipment to help people make their homes secure.

A spokesman said: “The forum is a good opportunity to meet up and share information with others with a view to making Keighley a safer place to live.”
