Visitors to the annual two-day Armed Forces event in Staveley will have the opportunity to give their views on policing, community safety and quality of life issues to the Commissioner, his Deputy and other members of the PCC’s team 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 where crime prevention advice to help them protect themselves and their property from crime will be available.
The Over to You initiative replaces ‘Have Your Say’ consultation as the County’s largest annual public feedback scheme and invites 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 on the website – 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.
Highlights of the two-day event at Poolsbrook Country Park, Staveley on 12th and 13th July 2014 (9.00am until 5.00pm) include a parade from Staveley Market Place at 10.00am with a Spitfire Flypast on Saturday and a Dakota Flypast on the Sunday.
This is one of a series of events where the Over to You team can be found encouraging people to complete their questionnaire and helping 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.
