Have your say in Southend-on-Sea
The next Police and Crime Commissioner public meeting discussing crime and policing issues, will take place in Southend-on-Sea on Monday July 15, 2013.
Key subjects for discussion will include crime trends across Southend, street robbery, the policing of Southend’s busy nightlife, plus any policing or crime subject that members of the audience wish to raise.
A briefing document on crime trends in Clacton can be accessed by clicking the link below, and will also be available at this afternoon’s meeting.
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 event is scheduled for:
Time: 17:30 to 19:30, Monday July 15
Location: Lecture Theatre, Central Library, Victoria Avenue, Southend, SS2 6EX
The dates of future meetings, including events in Braintree and Thurrock, can be seen on the PCC website here.
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.”
