Derbyshire Police and Crime Commissioner Hardyal Dhindsa is keen to encourage questions from the public in the first half hour of his Strategic Governance Board meeting on Monday (25 July).
Both he and Chief Constable Mick Creedon will be ready to answer questions from people who attend the meeting in person or send in their queries by tweet or by email. The meeting begins at 2pm in Police Headquarters’ Butterley Hall in Ripley.
“This is an ideal time for Derbyshire residents to find out what is happening in policing across the county and in their own neighbourhoods,” Commissioner Dhindsa said. “I am very keen for people to feel involved and part of the policing process, so the more questions the better. If we can’t supply specific details at the meeting, we will provide the answers as soon as possible afterwards.”
Followers of @DerbysPCC and @DerbysPolice can tweet their questions by using #askSGB in the text of the question. Questions via twitter should arrive no later than 2.15pm to allow time for a response. Questions can also be submitted in advance via email to the Chief Executive (David.Peet.16406@Derbyshire.PNN.Police.UK).
If the Q & A session is shorter than 30 minutes, the business part of the meeting will begin early. Once the Q & A is over, members of the public are welcome to observe the rest of the meeting but may not take part in it.
Progress in handling non-emergency 101 calls from the public will be among matters discussed during the meeting. An update on improvements made in the last three months will be presented to the Board following the Commissioner’s urgent request earlier this year for a better service.
Other matters to be considered at the meeting will include reports from the force on latest performance data, economic crime, organised immigration crime and human trafficking, and serious and organised crime groups.
