A Police Surgery is to be held in Fraserburgh to allow members of the public to meet with police officers and discuss any issues or concerns they have.

The open event is being held as part of Operation Rhylestone, which has sought to crackdown on anti-social behaviour in the area, and will be led by PC McGlashan and PC Gordon. A number of councillors have also been invited to attend.

The surgery is being held from 9am to 4pm on Saturday, April 12, at meeting room 2 in the Community Centre in Fraserburgh.

Commenting, PC Scott McGlashan said: “The point of the surgery is for members of the public to meet a local officer face to face and they can discuss any issue they wish, on the day confidentially or otherwise.

“This is part of Operation Rhylestone which has been a crackdown and sustained effort to deal with all types of anti-social behaviour in the Banff and Buchan East Community Policing area.

“It has been running since November last year and has been successful but we want this to continue. But for our success to grow and continue we must engage the public and listen to their concerns and issues and I see this as an ideal way to do this by going out into the community itself. It is also an opportunity for the public to feedback to us their thoughts on Operation Rhylestone.”

“This is not restricted to the residents of Fraserburgh and I would encourage those from the surrounding villages to come along and see us on the day,” he added.

As part of Operation Rhylestone, the Fraserburgh Herald reported this week that a total of 22 arrests had been made as part of the anti-social behaviour crackdown recently.
