South Gloucestershire residents will have their chance to put questions to Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mounstevens next week at the latest public forum.
The public forum is hosted jointly with Avon and Somerset Police and will be attended by the new Area Commander, Chief Superintendent Caroline Peters. At the forum there will be a short presentation on policing in the area and then a question-and-answer session with Sue and Caroline.
The forum will be held between 7pm and 9pm on Wednesday December 3rd, 2014 at Shire Way Community Centre in Yate.
Speaking ahead of the forum, PCC Sue Mountstsvens said: “I look forward to these forums as it is a great opportunity to meet people, find out what they think about policing in their area and answer any questions they might have for me. It’s your police service and this is your chance to find out more about it and help influence what happens in your community.”
Area Commander for the North East, Chief Superintendent Caroline Peters said: “I’m thrilled to have taken up the new position of Area Commander for the North East and I’m grateful for the chance to meet people who we serve. One of my priorities will be to ensure that all our communities receive the best possible service from our police officers and staff. We’ve seen some changes in our organisation, but I’d like to assure everyone that policing across the area will continue as usual and our communities should have every confidence that we’ll continue to do all we can to keep them safe.”
This is the second forum to be held in the area with the previous one being held in Kingswood September 2013. Amongst the topic discussed were problems with road safety, how restorative justice is used and custody provision – as well as local issues including motorbikes being ridden on green areas and cycle paths.
