Have your say in Maldon
The next Police and Crime Commissioner public meeting, discussing crime and policing issues, will take place in Maldon on Monday May 13th, 2013. Key issues will include rural and urban burglary and theft, response times and police visibility, marine crime, and any policing or crime subject that members of the audience wish to raise.
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 and Brentwood, and the next event is scheduled for:
Time: 17:30 to 19:30, Monday May 13th
Location: Upper Plume School, Fambridge Road, Maldon CM9 6AB
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.
“The 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.”
