Bath and North East Somerset Consultation Day
Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) Sue Mountstevens continues consultation on the Police and Crime Plan visiting the local communities of Bath and North East Somerset.
Ms Mountstevens began the third day of consultation in Keynsham at the local leisure centre before travelling to Midsomer Norton Town Hall and ending the day in Bath at the One Stop Shop.
Throughout the day, Ms Mountstevens engaged with more than 100 people, listening to their views and their local policing priorities.
In the morning local residents were invited to attend Keynsham Leisure Centre to meet with the Commissioner and have their say, in order to help shape the Police and Crime Plan.
Ms Mountstevens then went on to the Midsomer Norton Town Hall where she was joined by members of the local Neighbourhood Beat Team as well as local councillors and members of the community safety partnership.
The Commissioner finished the day at the One Stop Shop, speaking with and hearing from the local residents of Bath.
Speaking at Bath, Ms Mountstevens said: “These consultation events are for me to go out and make myself as available as possible and to listen to what people have to say.
“I want to visit people within their local areas and listen to their local policing priorities to help shape our Police and Crime Plan.
“One size policing doesn’t fit all therefore if we can meet local needs we can aim to make a difference in helping people to feel safe and be safe.”
While out on the road Ms Mountstevens is also asking for people to tweet their policing priorities for #ourplan.
