Public meeting – Brentwood
Venue: Council Chamber, Brentwood Borough Council
Address: Town Hall, Ingrave Road, Brentwood CM15 8AY
Brentwood residents can have their say on crime and community safety issues with their new Police and Crime Commissioner as he hosts a public meeting in the borough. The event will also provide an opportunity to discuss the preparations for the sale of Brentwood police station.
Roger Hirst will hold the meeting in Brentwood Town Hall on Thursday November 10, 2016, from 6.30pm to 8.30pm, and residents from across the district are invited to attend.
The PCC will be joined by Brentwood and Epping Forest District Commander Chief Inspector Denise Morrissey and members of the Brentwood borough Community Safety Partnership.
Roger Hirst, Police and Crime Commissioner for Essex, said: “I welcome the opportunity to meet with local residents and I urge everyone who wants to have their say on crime and policing related issues in the borough to come along.
“I understand the attachment communities have to their local police stations but research carried out over two months showed only ten people visited Brentwood police station to report a crime. This is not the best use of police resources.
“As a Brentwood resident, I know that what matters is having a police presence in the town. But that means officers out and about on patrol, not inside buildings away from the community.
“I believe it is essential that we continue to modernise the police property estate across the county. I will ensure that the money raised through this process is used primarily to help deliver more local, accessible and visible policing, a priority in my new Police and Crime Plan.”
The public meeting is scheduled for:
Time: 6:30pm to 8:30pm on Thursday November 10, 2016
Location: Council Chamber, Brentwood Town Hall, Ingrave Road, Brentwood CM15 8AY
