Still time for Uttlesford residents to have their say at PCC’s next public meeting

People can still come along and raise their crime and policing-related concerns and questions with the Police and Crime Commissioner for Essex.

PCC Nick Alston is hosting his next public meeting to discuss local crime and community safety issues in Saffron Walden.

The public meeting starts at 6.30pm on Thursday May 14, 2015 and is being held at Saffron Walden town hall in Market Place and will see crime trends and figures for the area discussed as well as other key issues of concern. Topics for discussion at the public meeting will include: an overview of all crime in the Uttlesford district; the local policing structure, visibility and closure of police stations.

The public will also be given the chance to ask their questions of PCC Nick Alston and Uttlesford’s District Commander Chief Insp Richard Melton, who will speak about the actions being taken by local officers to keep the area safe.

Mr Alston said: “I encourage everyone who lives in the Uttlesford area to come along to the meeting and raise the issues that matter to them around crime and policing. As well as discussing crime trends and issues of concern in the area people also have the opportunity to ask questions of both myself and the District Commander. If you care about keeping Uttlesford safe, please come along to the meeting and be part of the debate.”

The public meeting is scheduled for:


Time: 6:30pm to 8:30pm on Thursday May 14

Location: Saffron Walden Town Hall, Market Place, CB10 1HR

People who do not want to raise issues or concerns publicly at the meeting, can do so privately in a one to one surgery with the PCC ahead of the meeting.

To ensure the smooth running of the surgeries, these are run on an appointment-only basis. Any member of the public who would like a one to one with Nick Alston can contact the PCC office directly on 01245 291600 or use the online booking form on the PCC website here:
