Sue Mountstevens and Chief Constable Andy Marsh at their Facebook live session
Neighbourhood policing, recruitment, road safety and honour-based abuse are the topics that Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) Sue Mountstevens is inviting your questions on, to put to Chief Constable Andy Marsh.
The 30-minute session, taking place on July 4 at 11am, will be streamed live on Facebook and will see your PCC quiz the Chief Constable of Avon and Somerset Constabulary on the local policing issues affecting our communities.
The four topics will explore how your contribution towards the policing part of the council tax is being spent, what the Constabulary are looking for in new recruits, what happens in the event of a motorway collision and the extent that honour-based abuse and forced marriage is happening in Avon and Somerset.
PCC Sue Mountstevens said: “In a world where we police by consent, it’s important that the Chief Constable and I are open, accessible and accountable. These sessions are not only an opportunity for local people to have their say, but being able to live stream these meetings, every couple of months, demonstrates publicly how I am holding the Chief Constable to account on your behalf.
“I’ve chosen these topics as they are current issues that are being raised with me in my mailbag, via email and when out and about in the local community. I invite you to have a think about our latest discussion topics and send in your questions for me to put to the Chief Constable. Also, if you have any other subjects you would like me to raise in the future please let me know.”
The webchat will be broadcast on Facebook live via the following link – www.facebook.com/AandSPCC
