Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens
Avon and Somerset Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) Sue Mountstevens visited Wells and Yeovil in her penultimate day consulting on the Police and Crime Plan.
For the first time ever the Commissioner is constructing a localised Plan for policing and crime in each of the districts and today wanted to hear from the local people of Somerset East on the policing needs that matter to them in their area.
Ms Mountstevens began the day at the Wells Town Hall hearing from the local community on their local policing priorities.
At lunch time Ms Mountstevens was at Yeovil Town Centre where residents had their say on the Police and Crime Plan.
At both locations the Commissioner was joined by members of the local Neighbourhood Beat Team who were on hand to answer any operational queries.
Speaking after the day Ms Mountstevens said: “I was delighted that the people of Somerset took the time to come and speak with me today and give their views on their local policing priorities.
“I realise that the people of Wells, Yeovil and the surrounding areas have different policing needs to the rest of the force area and that is why for the first time I am developing a localised Police and Crime Plan for Somerset East.
“The local community of Somerset has the right to feel safe and be safe.”
While out on the road Ms Mountstevens is also asking for people to tweet their policing priorities at #ourplan
