New police information point opened at Highbridge supermarket

Highbridge shoppers can now pick up crime-fighting advice and discuss concerns with local police when they visit the town's Asda supermarket.

A police information point has been set-up in the store's car park, as pictured, and is being run by the beat team and two community support officers.

The building has cost £13,000 to set up and Asda is to donate £6,000 a year towards its running costs.

Volunteers, who have been given training on crime reduction advice and bike and property marking, will also be on hand.

The centre will fully open over the next few weeks, once issues with electricity supplies have been resolved.

A special beat surgery will also be held at the information centre between 3.30pm and 4.30pm on Thursday 12th February.
