The next Police and Crime Commissioner public meeting, discussing crime and policing issues, will take place in Rochford on March 28th, 2013. Key topics will include ASB, licensing and the “night time economy”, shoplifting, and vehicle crime, plus any policing or crime subject that members of the audience wish to raise.
Nick Alston aims to hold a public meeting in every district of Essex, twice a year, working with colleagues from Essex Police, Community Safety Partnerships, district and unitary councils, partner organisations and the voluntary sector. These are important events for everyone who cares about the way their community is policed and who wants to know the facts about crime in their area.
Meetings have already taken place in Southend-on-Sea, Basildon, Chelmsford and Dunmow, and the next event is scheduled for:
Time: 18:30 to 20:30, Thursday March 28th
Location: Hawthorn Centre Lecture Theatre, SEPT Rochford Hospital, Union Lane, Rochford, SS4 1RB
Nick Alston said: “It is important that crime continues to fall in Essex – that we have fewer victims of crime and fewer people living in fear of crime. I am committed to the principle of local solutions for local problems, and to ensuring that police, partner agencies, the voluntary sector and residents work together as closely as possible to keep our communities safe.
“The meeting will be two hours long. We’d love people to attend all the meeting, but if you can only make part of it, please still come along. I want your views to be part of the debate about how we can best keep the streets and countryside of Essex safe.
