PCC speaking at Bristol Older People's Forum
Bristol’s Older People’s Forum quizzed Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens at Easton Community Centre on Thursday, March 7.
Over 60 people attended the meeting with Bristol’s Lord Mayor Faruk Choudhury and the Chair of the Afro Caribbean Association and guest speaker Sue Mountstevens.
At the meeting Ms Mountstevens talked about the role of Police and Crime Commissioners (PCC), the priorities she has set for policing and her first public consultation as well as taking part in a questions and answers session.
Speaking to the residents, Ms Mountstevens said: “I am delighted to visit you today so you can speak to me face-to-face and see that I am responsible to you.
“My priorities are too a big a problem for just me and the police to tackle. They have to be tackled between all of us - by communities, police and partners all working together. I want to hear from you and for you to know that I am listening and I am your voice in policing.”
Detective Inspector Peter Highway, from Avon and Somerset Police’s Child Protection Group was also there to speak to the Forum about hate crime particularly about older people experiencing harassment.
Bristol Older People’s Forum was established in 1993 and works as a mechanism for human rights, aiming to improve the quality of life of all of Bristol’s older people both now and in the future.
