Focus on crime

NOW that the supermarket v marina issue seems to have died down, I wonder if you would be interested in campaigning on the issue of rural crime in the Todmorden area.

I would like to see some lobbying for a better police presence in our town besides the usual concentration of policing efforts around the Friday/Saturday night achohol abuse scenario. Your paper seems a little short on reporting crime and what the police response is going to be to deal with the offending patterns especially.
