Sue Mountstevens with the public in North Somerset
Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) Sue Mountstevens rounded up the consultation period on the Police and Crime Plan visiting the local communities of North Somerset.
Ms Mountstevens split the visit to North Somerset over several days in order to attend a partnership and community’s together (PACT) meeting and to hear from the local community out of hours.
On Tuesday, February 5, Ms Mountstevens attended a PACT meeting in Clevedon where she heard from residents on various local concerns and priorities. A range of issues were discussed at the meeting and priorities raised included road safety, parking, youth activities and internet crime.
On Friday, February 8, the Commissioner spoke with residents at the precinct in Nailsea for two hours. On Tuesday, February 12, the PCC finished off her tour of North Somerset visiting the Town Hall in Weston-super-Mare where she was joined by staff and the local Neighbourhood Beat Team.
Ms Mountstevens said: “For the first time ever there will be a Police and Crime Plan for each of the six policing districts of Avon and Somerset including North Somerset.
“This means each area will have its own plan with local priorities set by the public that have their say. Policing and crime affects us all and only by working together can we make sure that North Somerset’s Plan addresses your policing and community safety needs.”
While out on the road Ms Mountstevens is also asking for people to tweet their policing priorities for #ourplan
