Have your say in Harlow, Chelmsford, Braintree and Harwich
In late November and early December, the Police and Crime Commissioner will be holding public meetings to discuss crime and policing issues in Harlow, Chelmsford, Braintree and Harwich. Everyone is welcome to attend and have their say.
Nick Alston aims to hold a public meeting in every district of Essex twice a year, working with colleagues from Essex Police, Community Safety Partnerships, district and unitary councils, partner organisations and the voluntary sector. These are important events for everyone who cares about the way their community is policed and who wants to know the facts about crime in their area.
Meetings have already taken place in Southend-on-Sea, Basildon, Chelmsford, Dunmow, Rochford, Colchester, Brentwood, Maldon, Epping, Harlow, Castle Point, and Clacton, and the next events are scheduled for:
Time: 17:30 to 19:30, Wednesday November 27, 2013
Location: Civic Centre, Water Gardens, Harlow CM20 1WG
Time: 17:30 to 19:30, Tuesday December 3, 2013

Time: 16:00 to 18:00, Thursday December 5, 2013

Nick Alston said: “It is important that crime continues to fall in Essex – that we have fewer victims of crime and fewer people living in fear of crime. I am committed to the principle of local solutions for local problems, and to ensuring that police, partner agencies, the voluntary sector and residents work together as closely as possible to keep our communities safe.
“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.”
