Have your say about policing at question-and-answer session in Kingswood

sue and nickSouth Gloucestershire residents will have the chance to quiz two of the top police chiefs in Avon & Somerset on Tuesday, 3rd September at Kingswood Civic Centre.

The public forum will give people living and working in the district the chance to meet Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens and new Chief Constable Nick Gargan.

Sue Mountstevens said: ” I am looking forward to the opportunity of hearing directly from residents on their views on local policing. These forums provide the perfect opportunity for me to engage with the local community and find out what they think about how their area is policed. I strongly welcome residents to come along and share their thoughts.”

The session will also include an overview of policing in South Gloucestershire by Chief Superintendent Geoff Spicer and people will get the chance to ask any burning questions.

Chief Constable Nick Gargan said: “I’ve met the officers and police staff working to keep South Gloucestershire safe. Now I’m eager to hear what local people think. What’s your view on the service we provide? What do you think our local policing priorities should be?

“Although the forum is being held in Kingswood, we want to hear the views of people from across South Gloucestershire – whether they live in a rural hamlet or new-build estate, urban area or market town. I know not everyone will be able to come along to see us in person, but we’re more than happy to take questions in advance and you’ll be able to watch the session streamed live over the internet.”

The forum will be held at the Kingswood Civic Centre between 7pm and 9pm. To reserve a seat email pcc@avonandsomerset.pnn.police.uk or call 01275 816377.
