Chance to quiz Norfolk PCC and Chief Constable in Great Yarmouth

Norfolk’s Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) and Chief Constable will be answering questions from the public at a Q&A event in Great Yarmouth later this month.

Regular Q&A events are part of PCC Lorne Green’s pledge to give the public access to the county’s senior officers while ensuring he and the wider police service are visible, accessible and accountable to all.

The PCC will be joined by Chief Constable Simon Bailey for the next Q&A at East Coast College on Thursday 12 September, giving people the opportunity to share views, issues or concerns about crime and policing in their area.

“My undertaking has been, and remains, to give every man, woman and child in our county the opportunity to influence local policing where they live”, said Lorne.

“These events provide a unique opportunity for people to address their questions, concerns and ideas directly to the people in charge of the county’s policing service – something the Norfolk public has really welcomed.

“As Norfolk’s PCC, it is important I continue to listen and take on board the feedback people have about policing in the county. It’s public input like that which helps me fulfil the different responsibilities which come with my role – including setting crime reduction priorities, providing victim support services and holding our police force to account on behalf of the communities it serves.”

The event in Great Yarmouth will be the fifth Q&A of 2019, with the PCC and Chief Constable already having visited King’s Lynn, Diss, Norwich and Fakenham. The event held in Fakenham in July saw the PCC and Chief Constable joined by representatives of Norfolk’s fire and rescue service for the first ever joint policing and fire Q&A.

The policing and crime Q&A will be held on Thursday 12 September at 6pm in the conference room at East Coast College, Suffolk Road, NR31 0ED.
