Long Eaton Residents have the opportunity to give their views on policing, community safety and quality of life issues next week (Thursday 3rd July), when the Police & Crime Commissioner’s team visits the Market Place in Long Eaton as part of the county wide consultation programme Over to You.
Residents and shoppers will also be able to meet members of the local policing team when crime prevention advice to help them protect themselves and their property from crime will be available. The team will be in the Market Place from 10.00am until 2.00pm.
The Over To You initiative replaces ‘Have Your Say’ consultation as the County’s largest annual public feedback scheme and invites invite local people to take part in a survey about policing. Views can be given face to face to a member of the Commissioner’s team or via an online survey which can be reached via this link http://www.derbyshire-pcc.gov.uk/Get-Involved/Consultation-and-Community-Engagement/Over-to-You/Over-to-You.aspx.
Commissioner Charles said: “I want to hear from local people about the issues that impact on their quality of life whether this is anti-social behaviour, parking, speeding motorists, dog fouling or alcohol and drug related issues for example, to more serious areas of criminality such as burglary and violence. Then we will work with our partners to address the problems that cause most concern.
“As a result of the responses to last year’s consultation I’ve made changes to my Police and Crime Plan to reflect the views expressed by Derbyshire residents.
This is one of a series of events being held to encourage people to complete the questionnaire and help Commissioner Charles understand the differing needs of Derbyshire’s diverse communities. The information will be used to guide the Commissioner’s plans to make the County safer and help the Force allocate resources to where they are needed most.
