Your PCC Your Voice Have Your Say
Avon and Somerset Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) Sue Mountstevens will be taking to the road this summer aiming to find out what your views are on your policing pounds.
Consultation is one of the PCC’s statutory duties and being on the road throughout the summer is just one element of a vast programme of consultation and engagement activities to ensure local communities have the opportunity to get involved in important police decisions.
The programme will start this week when the PCC’s team attends the Kingwood Fun Day. This will be shortly followed by the Bath and West Show on Thursday May 30, where the PCC will be asking visitors how much council tax they would be prepared to pay towards policing.
PCC Sue Mountstevens said: “It is really important to me that local communities get the chance to have their say with regards to the different elements of policing. Going to events is just one of the ways that I get to meet members of the communities I represent and for them to tell me what is important to them.
“Everybody who makes up Avon and Somerset will have a view, especially on how the policing part of the council tax should be spent and I want to hear from you with your preferences and suggestions. It is only by hearing from you that we can make sure your policing needs are met.”
Throughout the summer, the PCC and her team will also be attending various other events including St Paul’s Carnival, Minehead Festival and Yate International Festival.
You can also have your say on your policing pounds by visitng our consultation website.
When all the feedback has been collated it will be used in the preparations for setting the Budget for 2014/15.
For more information about the summer events please see the Events Calendar.
