Residents in Bristol have two weeks to sign-up to a public forum with two of the top police bosses in Avon and Somerset on Wednesday, December 4, at 6.45pm at Broadmead Baptist Church.
The forum will give people living and working in Bristol a chance to meet Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) Sue Mountstevens and police area commander Chief Superintendent (C/Supt) Jon Reilly and ask any questions.
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.
"I’ve always said that I want to make policing as accessible as possible and for people 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."
The session will also include an overview of policing in Bristol by C/Supt Jon Reilly and people will get the chance to ask any questions.
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."
This is not the first time that the PCC has hosted a public forum in the city; the Trinity Community Centre and Cameron Centre in Lockleaze have also welcomed people to share their views on policing.
