Do you have a question about local policing in Bristol? If so you can ask Avon and Somerset Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) Sue Mountstevens and Bristol Area Commander Chief Superintendent (C/Supt) Jon Reilly on November 4, 2015.
Local residents across Bristol are being invited to attend the public forum, taking place at Broadmead Baptist Church between 6.45pm and 9pm, and will have the opportunity to put their questions to the PCC and Area Commander.
This is not the first time that the PCC and C/Supt have hosted a public forum such as this in the city. The Trinity Community Centre and Cameron Centre in Lockleaze have also welcomed members of the local community to share their policing views.
PCC Sue Mountstevens said: "Bristol is a diverse and passionate city and this is only the case because as individuals, living and working in the area, we care about it. Neighbourhood policing is paramount in ensuring we feel safe and are safe in our local communities and we want your views to make sure this is the case for you.
"I’ve always said that I want to make policing as accessible as possible. In order for people to care about their local community an important point is being able to have their say on local policing. I’m always looking for new opportunities to meet people and find out what they think about how their area is policed."
At the forum, attendees will receive a presentation from PCC Sue Mountstevens before being given an overview of policing by C/Supt Reilly. There will also be the opportunity to ask questions about local policing in Bristol.

C/Supt Jon Reilly said: "Bristol is a complex city with a range of policing challenges and that’s why it’s important to hear from local people living and working in Bristol.
"I’m interested in hearing first-hand the concerns and comments of people living across the city. It is absolutely right that local people should have the chance to shape and influence the policing plans for this area."
