Levenmouth Community Safety Panel is seeking new members to secure its future.

The panel has worked hard in the Leven area for many years to increase community safety and help prevent crime.

It has also raised funds to produce crime prevention advice and make alarms available to the local community to protect their property.

But at its recent AGM at Levenmouth Police Station in Methil, the panel recognised it needed to attract new members to ensure its future.

Councillor Jim Young, panel treasurer, said: “The turnout at the AGM was disappointing and as some of the members have been involved for many years they are looking to move on and encourage others to become involved.

“The community benefits from the work of the panel which has played a part in reducing crime in the area and I would encourage people to become involved in its work.”

Inspector Donald Jenks, Levenmouth Community Inspector, added: “The police have worked closely with the panel and we value the contribution they have made to help keep people safe.

“It has raised money for a number of crime prevention initiatives that have played a part in reducing crime to the lowest levels for many years. If you can give a few hours of your time to support the panel I would encourage you to do so as there is a great deal of satisfaction to be had seeing your efforts having a very positive impact on our community.”

If you would like to become involved in the panel please call the police on 101 and leave your contact details for Inspector Jenks who will pass them on to the panel.
