POLICE officers are to take their mobile rural roadshow to 15 Staffordshire Moorlands villages as part of a high profile campaign.

Residents will have the chance to discuss any areas of concern they have within their own community with officers.

They will be joined by a domestic abuse worker from Arch, which also provides accommodation, support, and advice for people experiencing domestic abuse, people in housing need, and people who need support to live independently.

The Staffordshire force's new tractor – Trevor – will also be on show, and police dogs will be present at some of the events, which take place next week.
