Ms Mountstevens said: “As the first police and crime commissioner for Avon and Somerset, I want to make sure I listen to and hear from as many people as possible.
“There has never been a Police & Crime Plan for the six policing areas of Avon and Somerset before and it is vital that the residents of South Gloucestershire have a say in their areas Plan. I need to know what is important to people so it becomes our Police and Crime Plan and together with local communities, the police and partners we are tackling the things that matter to you.”
