If you live or work in the Southend District and have an interest in community safety matters come along to a public meeting being held by the Office of the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for Essex.
It is taking place on Wednesday, June 26th at Leigh Community Centre, 71-73 Elm Road, Leigh, SS9 1SP between 6.30pm and 8pm.
Details of current crime trends and ongoing operations will be discussed at the meeting. People going along can also ask questions and raise any concerns.
Jane Gardner, the Deputy Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for Essex, Essex Police’s District Commander Chief Inspector Neil Pudney plus representatives from Essex County Fire and Rescue Service and the local Community Safety Partnership will be attending the event.
Jane Gardner said: “Public meetings are a great way to hear directly from local communities about concerns they might have and areas of activity that are in place and working well. Very often, a joint approach is the answer to a problem. We hold regular public meetings across the county and with a panel of experts on hand; these meetings are a great way to find the solutions together. Do come along whether you have criticisms, compliments or constructive comments to make. We want to hear them all because your voices matter.”
Chief Inspector Neil Pudney said: “I’m really looking forward to welcoming and informing communities across Southend of the changes we have made over the past year, focusing our efforts on a proactive approach to tackling crime and safeguarding vulnerable people. The event is a great opportunity to not only listen to concerns, answer questions but highlight some really innovative initiatives, our use of technology and the increase in resources which means we are really well placed to deliver the very best possible service to Southend.”
