The next Police and Crime Commissioner public meeting discussing local crime and policing issues, will take place in Basildon on Tuesday February 18, 2014.

Nick Alston said: “We had an excellent series of public meetings in all parts of Essex last year. We’re looking to build on those events and I encourage everyone to come along to this year’s meetings and raise the issues that matter to them.
“We provide the very latest crime figures at the meetings, publishing these on our website too. We also explore the facts and context around any crime trends, with briefings from the Essex Police District Commander and Community Safety Partnership. Everyone attending the meeting can put their questions directly to the police, the community safety team, and to me. I will also ask challenging questions of the police and council, as well as highlighting some of the excellent work that is taking place.
“If you care about keeping your community as safe as it can possibly be, please come along and get involved.”
The next event is scheduled for:
Time: 18:30 to 20:30, Tuesday February 18, 2014
Location: St George’s Suite, Basildon Centre, St Martin’s Square, Basildon, SS14 1DL
A briefing document containing the latest crime figures for the area will be published shortly on the PCC website, and discussed in detail at the meeting.
Nick Alston adds: “Each 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.”
