Derby residents are being urged to have their say on policing during the final event of a three-month public consultation series.
Representatives from Derbyshire Police Authority and Derbyshire Constabulary will be at Pak Foods, in Normanton Road, between 10am and 2pm on Wednesday, July 18 to collect views about policing in the area and discuss issues such as the forthcoming introduction of Police and Crime Commissioners.
Residents will also have the chance to meet their local Safer Neighbourhood policing team.
This is the tenth and final event in the county-wide series, which began in May. In addition to the Have Your Say series, the consultation team has attended community events across Derbyshire to seek residents’ views.
The information collected will provide both the authority and the Police and Crime Commissioner with up-to-date feedback from the communities of Derbyshire. The information will also be made available to those developing the new Police and Crime Plan for future years.
Carole Brister, Chair of the Authority’s Citizen Focus Committee, urged people to take this opportunity to have their say. She said: “It’s important that people take part and share with us their views on local policing and what they think of the force.
“We will use their views to shape the way we deliver policing in Derbyshire in the future.”
Chief Constable Mick Creedon said: “The Have Your Say consultation series is key to both the health of the force and the quality of the service we provide to the public. It is important that we are aware of the views of our communities so we can tailor policing to meet their needs.”
