PCC 2018 public meeting programme

PCC says it’s your police service – tell us what you think

Suffolk’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Tim Passmore and the Chief Constable, Gareth Wilson, are staging a series of public meetings across the county through the coming months and are encouraging Suffolk residents to make a note in their diaries.

There will be a meeting in each of the seven district and borough areas.  The meetings are an opportunity for the public to ask questions of the Commissioner and the Chief Constable and to find out more about policing in the county.

Tim Passmore said: “Public engagement is hugely important in this role and I make myself available to anyone who needs to speak to me through one-to-one surgeries and directly via e-mail and on the phone, but it is equally important to have these bigger meetings where people can question me in a more open forum.
“I do hope people will accept this invite to come and find out more about policing. Gareth and I will be pleased to discuss any matter that arises.
“I am hoping for an open and frank two-way dialogue, so please spread the word as I really want to encourage a good crowd.”

Each meeting will involve a quick overview from Tim Passmore and Gareth Wilson and then the public will have an opportunity to ask questions. There will be a senior police officer, responsible for policing in the local area, to add operational context.

There is no need to book, please just turn up.   Meetings start at 7pm and are expected to end at 8.30pm. Tea and coffee will be served from 6.40pm.
