PCSO Louise Perry is a member of the Barrow Borough Neighbourhood Policing Team. The team covers Dalton Town and the rural area stretching from Piel Island to Yarlside and Holbeck through to Askam and Ireleth as far as Paradise and the villages of Newton, Lindal and Marton.

I am responsible for Dalton Town North, which covers the north side of Market Street, Chapel Street, Broughton Road up to the South Lakes Animal Park and also into Lindal and Marton. I cover the villages of Askam and Ireleth.

I am keen to hear from members of the community regarding their concerns and issues which affect their daily routines and quality of life. To solve your problems the Neighbourhood Policing Team need to know what your problems are. To maintain improvement it is essential that you report your concerns to the Police.

If you would like to discuss any issues please do not hesitate to make contact by calling 101 Ext 45252 or via e-mail at:-101@cumbria.police.uk

I am in attendance at most Askam & Ireleth Parish Council meetings which are held on each 3rd Tuesday of the month alternating between the Temperance Hall, Ireleth and Rankin Hall, Askam at 7.15pm.

You can also speak to me at the Police pod which is situated in the car park adjacent to the bowling green on Sandy Lane. I advertise the weekly opening times on all of the village notice boards.

Askam and Ireleth was voted the safest village in the North West in 2017.
