Your chance to quiz PCC at Great Yarmouth Q&A event

Norfolk’s Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) and Deputy Chief Constable will be answering questions from the public at a special event next week.

PCC Lorne Green and Deputy Chief Constable Nick Dean will host a Q&A session in Great Yarmouth on Thursday 5 July to give people the opportunity to share views, issues or concerns about crime and policing in their area.

The event is the third 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 – 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 and Downham Market which were both well attended and Lorne is hoping to see a good turn-out in Great Yarmouth 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 Thursday evening. I hope Great Yarmouth residents will welcome the opportunity to raise any views or concerns they may have face-to-face with myself and the Deputy Chief Constable.”

Over the course of the year the PCC will be making his way around the county – keep an eye on the Norfolk PCC website for more future dates and locations.

The Q&A event will be held on Thursday 5 July from 6pm at Great Yarmouth Borough Council, Town Hall, Hall Plain, Great Yarmouth, NR30 2QF.
