Start the New Year by putting your policing questions to Chief Constable Andy Marsh, when he takes part in the first Facebook Live of 2018, with Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) Sue Mountstevens.
Taking place on Tuesday, January 16 at 11am, the PCC is asking local people to send her questions based on a number of topics, ahead of the next 30-minute web session in which she will quiz Avon and Somerset’s top cop.
Questions are being invited on a number of topics ahead of this next live webchat and will include plans for the New Year, police funding and resources, stalking and harassment and rape and sexual assault.
PCC Sue Mountstevens said: “I’m delighted the live webchats will be returning for 2018. The sessions, which I host every couple of months, enable me to ensure the Chief Constable and I are as accessible to local people as possible. After having to postpone our previous session, there is a lot for us to discuss and questions to be answered.
“It is important local people are given the opportunity to ask their Chief Constable questions about policing, community safety and criminal justice matters. These live webchats will continue throughout the year and I hope residents use them as an opportunity to have their questions answered and share their views on local policing.”
The webchat will be broadcast on Facebook live via the following link – www.facebook.com/AandSPCC
You can submit your questions by emailing them to firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 01275 816377.
You can also send us your questions on Facebook or on Twitter using the hashtag #PCCinconvo.
Chief Constable Andy Marsh said: “An important part of my role is to understand and stay in touch with the people we are here to serve, if the Constabulary is to meet their needs. Taking part in the live webchats with the Police and Crime Commissioner is a great opportunity to hear from and talk to the communities we serve, to learn how we can work in closer partnership to address the root causes of crime and help people feel safe.”
Chief Constable Andy Marsh is responsible for day-to-day operational policing and has direction and control of the Constabulary’s officers and staff. It is the PCC’s responsibility to set the strategic direction for policing in Avon and Somerset and hold the Chief Constable to account for delivering policing.
Should you submit a question to the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner which is not answered in full on the Facebook live, we will look to further respond to you in due course.
