Join us for women’s safety Walk & Talk events – 17 April

Female PCSO talks to a young girl wearing a green top on a local high street

On Wednesday 17th April, our neighbourhood policing teams are running a series of community Walk & Talk events across the region in a bid to raise awareness and understanding of women’s safety.  

The events will provide an opportunity for community members to engage directly with local female officers, discussing any worries or concerns within their local area and exploring actionable steps to improve safety for women and girls within the community.  

“Whether you live or work in the area, we believe it’s crucial for women to feel safe on our streets,” said Acting Inspector Rose Green, who launched the Walk and Talk Scheme for Avon and Somerset Police. “This event is about empowering women to voice their concerns and working together to create effective solutions to create safer environments for everyone living or working in Avon and Somerset.” 

The Walk and Talk will last around 30 minutes and whilst the event primarily targets women aged 18 and over, individuals of all genders are welcome to participate. Attendees are encouraged to bring along family, friends, or colleagues to join in the conversation. Neighbourhood officers will be available both before and after the walk for further conversation or enquiries.  

For those unable to attend the scheduled event or wishing to address specific concerns, individual Walk & Talk sessions are available. Interested individuals can find more information at:  Walk and Talk
