What policing questions would you like your Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC), Sue Mountstevens to put to your Chief Constable Andy Marsh?
Residents are once again being encouraged to submit their local policing questions to the PCC, ahead of the next Facebook live video with the Chief Constable on Monday, March 13, 2017 at 12.30pm – the fourth in a series of live webchats.
Over the course of the 30-minute live video, the PCC and Chief Constable will discuss questions raised by local people based on a number of key themes including burglary, drugs and anti-social behaviour (ASB).
PCC Sue Mountstevens said: “These bi-monthly live webchats are your opportunity to address your local policing questions and concerns directly with the Chief Constable. Having the sessions every few months allows me to put current and timely topics and questions to the Chief Constable and give local people answers immediately.
“I hope residents will once again have lots of questions to submit linked to the themes we’ve selected for our next webchat. We’re also trialling different times of the day, to ensure we’re accessible to people when it’s convenient for them. This is our first lunchtime chat and I hope you’ll have the time to tune-in over a sandwich.”
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 Twitter using the hashtag #PCCinconvo
Chief Constable Andy Marsh said: “I welcome your challenging and insightful questions and the opportunity to answer the policing queries and concerns you put to me. It’s vital that I hear your concerns and make sure these are addressed.
“In the latest webchat you raised some really valid points about Taser and body worn video. I hope the answers I provided give you a better understanding of how these pieces of equipment are used and are reassured they’re used appropriately and fairly.”
Chief Constable Andy Marsh is responsible for day-to-day operational policing and has direction and control of the Constabulary’s officers and staff.
