Last Wednesday evening Assembly Member for Monmouth, Nick Ramsay, chaired a public meeting at Abergavenny’s Community Centre with representatives of the police, members of the public and local councillors present.
Nick had called for the meeting having received correspondence in recent months from local residents concerned about crime locally and the apparent lack of police response.
Police and Crime Commissioner, Jeff Cuthbert, together with Inspector Damian Sowrey and Superintendent Dan Taylor represented the police on the panel and provided information and feedback to questions raised by the audience.
Speaking after the meeting Nick said: “There have been a number of concerns in the town in the wake of the recent spate of high profile burglaries including the repeated break-ins at a local tobacconist and shocking petrol bombing of a burger van
“It’s important that the public had this opportunity to ask questions and our local police have the chance to reassure them.
“I would like to thank all those who attended the meeting. I hope that we will see some positive outcomes from our discussions and that the concerns that have been raised will be addressed as soon as possible.”
