Shouldn't an event like this be targeted at an entire community so they can all raise their concerns and not targeted at a community based solely on their country of origin? It's thoughtless things like this that fuel segregation and exclusion so the police of all people should know better. Opening the event to all would promote community awareness and promote inclusiveness.

I think the Police should advise the Polish residents to speak English when in public to enhance community relations; stop being ridiculously noisy when drunk in the nearby park at stupid o'clock at night and stop abusing the Council Tax single person's discount. Tensions are rising around where I live...

Surprised our hard-pressed Police have time to do this, would like to know who instigates these initiatives. Its just more of the same, like giving out cannabis scented scratch cards, flip flops for drunk girls who might fall off high heels, are they incapable of targeting resources properly. Frequently see the police drive-by when people are riding cycles on pavements, cars parked on zig zags at crossings, what's going on? We need more pro-active policing, get them out of their cars and offices and get them walking round the areas of concern, they might find a cannabis factory then, rather than resort to gimmicks like scratch and sniff cards.
