Your chance to quiz PCC and Chief Constable

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

PCC Lorne Green and Chief Constable Simon Bailey will host a Q&A session in Watton on Wednesday 7 March to give people the opportunity to share views, issues or concerns about crime and policing in their area.

The event is the first 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 has 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.

PCC Lorne Green said: “For 2018, I’ve decided to split the two events, ensuring that, for the Q&A sessions, there is a real emphasis on the local policing and crime picture and the issues affecting people living and working in the area.

“Last year, the Norfolk public really bought into the Q&A style-events and welcomed the opportunity to have face-to-face access to the Chief Constable and myself. Great discussion of crime and policing concerns was had, fuelled by lots of varied and, at times, challenging questions.

“I’m very much looking forward to the event next month and I hope lots of Watton residents will take the opportunity to pop along. Over the course of the year, we’ll be making our way around the county so keep an eye on the Norfolk PCC website for future dates and locations.”

The Q&A event will be held on Wednesday 7 March 2018 from 6pm at The Queens Hall, Norwich Road, Watton, IP25 6DA.
