Residents from across South Gloucestershire are being invited to attend a public forum by Avon and Somerset Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) Sue Mountstevens and Chief Constable Andy Marsh on Thursday, June 7, 2018.
The PCC Police Public Forum, being held at the Shire Way Community Centre in Yate, will give local people from the area and the surrounding communities the opportunity to have their say and ask questions about local policing.
The forum will begin with a welcome from the PCC and Chief Constable, before attendees receive a presentation on policing in the area, by Chief Inspector Mark Evans. This will be followed by an open question and answer session.
PCC Sue Mountstevens said: “Listening to local people’s views about policing is a vital part of my role as PCC and I’ve been holding these public forums for over five years now. Residents tell me they see these meetings as an opportunity to share their concerns and to help make the communities they live and work in safer and stronger.
“I’m delighted to be returning to the Shire Way Community Centre. The last time I was here topics raised by residents included police visibility in the Kingswood and Staple Hill area, reported crime figures in particular burglary and questions on neighbourhood policing in Frampton Cotterell. I hope local people will take the time to join us once again.”
Chief Constable Andy Marsh said: “This is my first forum at the Shire Way Community Centre and I am keen to talk about the current policing landscape with residents, as this will have undoubtedly changed since the last forum Sue hosted here.
“I welcome the opportunity to discuss what you think is important to ensure the safety of our communities. Our force covers a very large area with a diverse range of policing needs and it is imperative we hear from local people to use their views to help shape policing.”
The forum will be held at The Shire Way Community Centre, Shire Way, Yate, Bristol BS37 8YS, and will take place between 6.45pm-9pm on Thursday June 7, 2018.
