Police in Larne have outlined a commitment to tackling hate crime and other issues in the borough as part of this year’s policing plan.
The 2014-2015 plan sets out local policing priorities and ambitions for the next 12 months.
The plan commits local officers to delivering three core principles of personal, professional and protective policing.
Objectives for personal policing include lowering the level of hate crime, deaths and injuries on the roads, and anti-social behaviour, as well as reducing non domestic violent crime.
Meanwhile, the professional policing pledge is to continue to support Larne Policing and Community Safety Partnership (PCSP) and other key stakeholders to progress local inititiaves.
And in terms of protective policing, the PSNI is aimingto provide an improved service to vulerable groups.
The plan was launched at the latest meeting of Larne PCSP in the town hall.
Chairman of Larne PCSP, Councillor Mark McKinty said: “The police have shaped this plan to target the areas of concern highlighted by the people of the Larne borough, and I believe this is an important step to improving community confidence in the police.
“I will continue to work with our members, the PSNI, and other bodies who play a role in the safety and well-being of our community.
“The PCSP will continue to both work with and monitor the police to ensure that community safety and confidence in policing on the ground continues to increase.”
