Suffolk Constabulary’s Chief Constable and Police and Crime Commissioner will be on hand to answer your questions in an online discussion next week.
The two-hour long chat will be hosted on Suffolk Constabulary’s website on Monday (29 October) between 6pm and 8pm.
Residents will be able to quiz both Gareth Wilson and Tim Passmore at the click of a mouse about any crime issues or questions they may have.
Chief Constable Gareth Wilson said: “This is an exciting opportunity. I’m keen to talk to people about the issues that affect them and am looking forward to discussing some of our positive police work. As we said earlier this year we will be making changes to our Safer Neighbourhood team model to respond to the public’s wishes for more officers on the frontline, so we will be very interested to hear their views.
“We hold regular public meetings, but I’m hoping the live web chat will give many people who might not always manage to get out to see their local officers a chance to engage with us directly.”
Tim Passmore said: “Having direct contact with members of the public is very important to me and a key part of my role as your Police and Crime Commissioner. A crucial part of my work is to represent the views and opinions of local communities as we deliver policing across the county and this web chat is a great way for me to gather these views.
“Policing in the county is changing and the Chief Constable has recently designed local policing to meet the needs of communities right across the county. I would encourage anyone with a question or comment to log on and get involved, tell us what you think as your opinion really matters.”
You are invited to take part and direct questions to both the Chief and PCC during the session between 6pm and 8pm on Monday 29 October on the Suffolk Constabulary website.
The chat will be hosted from 6pm onwards and can be found on this website: www.suffolk.police.uk.
