Students, residents and local people are being encouraged by Avon and Somerset Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) Sue Mountstevens and Avon and Somerset Police to attend their next public forum in Portishead on Wednesday, June 3, 2015.
North Somerset local communities will have the chance to put their questions to the PCC and Somerset’s Area Commander, Chief Superintendent (C/Supt) Daimon Tilley as well as having the opportunity to find out more about local policing.
The event, which will be taking place at Gordano School in Portishead between 6.45pm - 9pm, will include an introduction by the Commissioner, an overview of local policing in the area and a question and answer session.
Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens said: "Last time we hosted a public forum in North Somerset we discussed topics including volunteering with local policing, cybercrime, local crime hotspots and social media. I hope that we will once again get such a diverse and varied set of questions as I enjoy the opportunity to hear what local people think.
"Hopefully our venue will not only make us accessible to local people but also attract students and young people to get involved and share their views on policing. If you have a question, concern or just want to find out more about local policing in North Somerset, I would encourage you to come along and join us for the evening."
This is the second forum to be held in the area with the previous being held in Weston-super-Mare in January 2014. To read the summary notes of the Q&A session or watch a recording of this meeting click here.
Area Commander for Somerset, C/Supt Daimon Tilley said: "I’d like to encourage as many local residents as possible to come along – this forum is your opportunity to talk with us about what policing issues matter to you, what you believe we do well and what we can do better for our communities. I’m looking forward to hearing your views and answering any questions you may have."
