Ask your questions of PCC and Chief in live webchat
DO you have a burning question for your Police and Crime Commissioner or Chief Constable?
Essex residents who want to quiz PCC Nick Alston or Chief Constable Stephen Kavanagh are being given a unique chance to put forward their questions as both men take part in a live webchat.
In recent months the PCC and Chief Constable have made major announcements about the future of Essex Police. These announcements have included changes to local policing including a reduction in PCSO numbers, the proposed closure and sale of police stations and changing and modernising how the public contact police.
The Chief Constable and PCC have also spoken about the challenges faced by Essex Police in dealing with the crimes causing the most harm in our society such as domestic abuse, child abuse, child sexual exploitation and “honour-based” crime.
All of those subjects and more will be up for debate as both men go online to talk to you and answer your questions.
The live webchat will be taking place on Monday January 25 from 6pm to 8pm and people can join in by logging on to http://essex.police.uk/talkbacklive.
People can email their questions in advance to [email protected] or submit them on the night via the above weblink.
Nick Alston, Police and Crime Commissioner for Essex, said: “I regularly meet members of the public and there is never any shortage of opinion or questions from them about crime and policing in this county, which I welcome.
“This live webchat will give people the unique opportunity to continue to share those questions and opinions with myself and the Chief Constable from the comfort of their own home.”
Chief Constable Stephen Kavanagh added: “The views of the residents of this county matter greatly to me and I welcome the opportunity to hear from the public.
“I encourage anyone who cares about Essex Police to log on and ask us your questions.”
The PCC and Chief Constable will endeavour to answer as many questions as they can in the time allotted.
