A senior police officer, councillors and council officers will be at the meeting to answer questions.
Speaking to the Post at the crime scene, residents have raised concerns about lighting and the number of police patrols.

The meeting will take place in the Gascoigne Community Hall on Thursday, February 8 from 7pm to 8pm.
