Police and Crime Commissioner Alan Charles is to visit Buxton this Thursday (10 Oct), visiting Fairfield Sure Start Children's Centre and Fairfield Resident's Association before meeting local residents and businesses in the Pavilion Gardens, The Crescent and Buxton Market Place.
He will also meet local councillors and representatives from Community Safety and Visitor Services to hear about any specific policing issues and priorities affecting them. Insp Martin Coey and members of the local policing team will be available to explain to the Commissioner the work they are doing to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour in the area.
Members of the press are welcome to attend - the visit will commence at 11.15 am at Fairfield Sure Start Children's' Centre on Victoria Park Road.
"Buxton is not only one of the most popular tourist attractions in the Peak District, but it is also home to 24,000 people, a university and numerous businesses," said Mr Charles.
"I'm keen to see how the police and local partners are working together to keep crime levels low and hopefully reduce them still further.
"But most importantly, I want to meet people. I want to hear first-hand what people think about policing in the area, so that we can really understand what they expect from the police service. I also want them to know that we take crime in rural areas and market towns, such as Buxton, very seriously. We work across the whole county, not just bits of it."
Anyone wishing to attend is asked to contact Sallie Blair on 07702 541401 in advance.
