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

Keighley Safer Neighbour-hood Team will host the gathering on Monday at Central Hall, Alice Street.

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

Members of local Neighbourhood Watch groups will explain how people can become involved in groups or set up their own.

There will also be crime- prevention tips and demonstrations of low-priced equipment can help make homes secure.

A spokesman said: “The forum is a good opportunity to meet and share information with others with a view to making Keighley a safer place to live.” It will run from 7pm to 8.30pm.
