PFCC Brentwood Online Public Meeting – Thursday 20th October 2022
Residents and businesses in Brentwood are being invited to find out more about crime and community safety in the district at an online meeting being held by Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner, Roger Hirst.
Attendees at the meeting will also have the opportunity to put questions and concerns to Roger and a panel of senior representatives from Essex Police, Essex County Fire and Rescue Service and Brentwood Borough Council.
The meeting will take place on Thursday 20th October on Facebook Live from 7pm to 8pm. Roger will be joined on the panel by T/Chief Inspector Paul Ballard, Essex Police, Mark Eaglestone, Group Manager Southwest, Essex County Fire and Rescue Service and Jonathan Woodhams, Brentwood Community Safety Partnership.
Roger Hirst, Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner said: “Being able to hear directly from local communities about any concerns they have or issues they are experiencing helps us understand what more we can do to make people feel safer.”
“Our public meetings are also a great way to brief residents on how we are working together with a range of partners to deliver the priorities laid out in the Police and Crime Plan and the Fire and Rescue Plan.
“Funding for more police officers, helping those suffering from domestic abuse, protecting vulnerable people and tackling gangs and serious violence are a few examples of how we are making this happen. Attendees can also hear from Essex County Fire and Rescue Service on the excellent prevention work they are doing in Brentwood to reduce the risk of harm.”
At the meeting, there will be updates on successes such as reductions in residential burglaries (down by 10%) and business burglaries (down by 6%).
You can also hear about how the Community Policing Team are working with young women and girls to identify areas in Brentwood where they might feel unsafe and develop preventative measures to tackle this, as well as how the team have been working with partners to help with homelessness in Brentwood.
Questions and comments from the public can be asked on the night or online at www.facebook.com/PFCCEssex. Advanced questions can be sent to [email protected].
