Shoppers, workers and residents from Belper will be able to share their views about local policing with representatives of the county’s Police and Crime Commissioner Alan Charles on Thursday 14 August, when the Over to You roadshow visits the Town’s King Street.
One of a series of public consultation events across Derbyshire, people will be able to talk to Deputy Commissioner Hardyal Dhindsa, who will attend alongside members of the local policing team and representatives from the Commissioner’s own public consultation team. The event will run from 10am until 2pm.
“This face to face conversation between members of my team and local people enables me to hear what people really think about the issues that impact on their quality of life,” Mr Charles said. “I want to make sure that my priorities reflect their priorities whether they are concerned about anti-social behaviour, parking and speeding problems, alcohol and drug related issues or burglary and violence. The responses tell me what I need to know in order to make the county safer.”
Mr Charles finds consultation with members of the public invaluable in guiding his plans and working with crime and safety partners to address the problems that cause most concern. The information provided also plays a key part in helping Chief Constable Mick Creedon to allocate police resources effectively.
The event will also provide crime prevention advice to residents to help people protect themselves and their property from crime.
