North Norfolk residents invited to quiz PCC and Chief ConstableNorfolk’s Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) and Chief Constable will be answering questions from the public at a special event next week.
PCC Lorne Green and Chief Constable Simon Bailey will host a Q&A session in Cromer on Tuesday 25 September to give people the opportunity to share views, issues or concerns about crime and policing in their area.
The event is the fourth of its kind in 2018 as part of the Commissioner’s ongoing 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.
Last year, Lorne held seven Public Accountability Forum (PAF) meetings – one in each district - with the Chief Constable, each followed by a public Q&A session.
For 2018, Lorne decided to split the two events – holding each PAF at police headquarters in Wymondham while taking the Q&A sessions ‘on tour’ across the county.
The PCC has already hosted events in Watton, Downham Market and Great Yarmouth which were well attended and Lorne is hoping to see a good turn-out in Cromer next week.
“As Norfolk’s Police and Crime Commissioner it is important I listen to any concerns people may have about policing and these question and answer sessions have proven to be a good platform in which to do so,” said Lorne.
“I pledge to give every man, woman and child the opportunity to influence local policing in the area where they live.
“The Norfolk public has really bought into the Q&A events and I am very much looking forward to next week. I hope Cromer residents will welcome the opportunity to raise any views or concerns they may have face-to-face with myself and the Chief Constable.”
The Q&A event will be held on Tuesday 25 September from 6pm at North Norfolk District Council offices, Holt Road, Cromer, NR27 9EN.
