Those City Police liaison meetings

I've posted this week and last week about City Police safer wards meetings and why they are important for setting some of the road safety agenda. Much more on this next week when we are planning to analyse just exactly how the City spends its budget on road safety and cycling infrastructure on anything other than road safety and cycling infrastructure. It's rather upsetting when you read the detail.

If I've encouraged at least one or two people to attend one of these meetings, that would be a result in itself.

And so, here's a list of the meetings.

You do need to have some sort of connection to the meeting. If you work, live or travel through that part of the City, for example.
