Have your say in Witham and Braintree
The next Police and Crime Commissioner public meeting discussing local crime and community safety issues will take place in Witham on Monday 19th May 2014.
The public briefing document containing information about the policing model in Braintree district, the latest reported crime figures for the area and significant context concerning crime trends is now online, and will also be available at the public meeting.
Nick Alston said: “We’ve had an excellent series of public meetings in all parts of Essex over the last year and a half, and we’re looking to build on those events. I encourage everyone who lives in Witham or anywhere in the Braintree district to come along to the meeting and raise the issues that matter to them.
“We provide the very latest crime figures, publishing these on our website too. We explore the facts and context around any crime trends, with briefings from the local Essex Police District Commander, Chief Inspector Richard Melton, and the 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: 18:00 to 20:00, Monday 19th May 2014
Location: New Rickstones Academy, Conrad Road, Witham, CM8 2SD
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.”
