The last in this current series of public meetings staged by Suffolk’s Police and Crime Commissioner Tim Passmore will be held at St John’s Church Hall in Cauldwell Hall Road, Ipswich on Monday 13 October at 6.30pm.
These 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 their area; there is no need to book your place in advance, just turn up.
Tim Passmore said:
“Having direct contact with the people of Suffolk that I represent is extremely important to me.
“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. Douglas Paxton, the Chief Constable, and I will be pleased to discuss any matter that arises.
“Public engagement is a key responsibility for every PCC and covering such a large geographical area, this is quite a challenge.
“I have set up a meeting in each district and borough to make it as easy as possible and 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 Douglas Paxton 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.
