Ask your question of the PCC & Chief Constable at the Essex Police Challenge
THE new Police and Crime Commissioner for Essex will be holding the Chief Constable publically to account as he hosts his first Essex Police Challenge event.
The event, taking place on Thursday July 7, will see Mr Hirst questioning Chief Constable Stephen Kavanagh publically about the force’s performance as well as other key issues affecting the community.
Members of the public will also be able to put their questions to both the PCC and Chief Constable about their crime and community safety-related concerns.
The two hour meeting, which takes place at The Forum in Elmer Square, Southend, will concentrate on the following areas: anti-social behaviour and local policing including police visilbity in the community; and gang crime and combating street violence.
Roger Hirst, Police and Crime Commissioner for Essex, said: “The Essex Police Challenge event is an important and unique opportunity for the residents of Essex to put their questions directly to me and the Chief Constable about their crime and policing concerns both locally and across the county.
“The event also enables me to dispense my duty as Police and Crime Commissioner to hold the Chief Constable to account in public.
“I would encourage everyone to come along and be part of the event.”
