Derbyshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner Hardyal Dhindsa is preparing a packed programme of community visits in 2017 as part of his epic countywide tour to meet local people and help solve their community safety problems.
Shortly after his election last May, Mr. Dhindsa pledged to visit every corner of Derbyshire during his four-year team and is inviting community groups and events’ organisers to get in touch if they would like to be a part of that journey.
The Commissioner launched a new web page this week which follows his progress across the county in the #D383 campaign, which will cover the rural hinterlands in North Derbyshire down to Netherseal in the South, across to Belph in the East and Sudbury to the West.
People who visit the page will find out where and how they can meet the Commissioner, look at photos of recent events and to request a visit at a community-led event. It also details the places he has visited so far on his tour.
Mr. Dhindsa said: “Talking to people is essential for this job and I want to travel the length and breadth of our county, meeting with local people, sharing their experiences of crime and policing and finding out more about the diverse cultures and communities that call Derbyshire home as well as the challenges we need to overcome to make everybody feel safer.
“Derbyshire is a wonderful place to live and is one of the safest counties in the country. I want to maintain this and I need the public’s help to do that by communicating their needs and concerns.
“I’m especially keen to visit villages and communities that have not yet formed part of the tour and would invite anyone planning a public event in the coming weeks or months to get in touch.”
If you have a community event, residents meeting, forum, community group (business, religious, educational) in your area which represents the local community, and you would like the opportunity to engage with the Commissioner, please visit the #D383 web page at www.derbyshire-pcc.gov.uk
