Have your say about crime and community safety in Southend-on-Sea
The next Police and Crime Commissioner public meeting discussing local crime and policing issues, will take place in Southend-on-Sea on Friday January 17, 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 council 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, Friday January 17, 2014
Location: The Lecture Room, The Forum, Elmer Square, Southend-on-Sea, SS1 1NE

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.”
