Police and crime commissioner invites questions from the public

Posted On 03 Jan 2017 at 9:37 pm

The Sussex police and crime commissioner is inviting the public to put questions in writing to her in advance of a meeting with councillors in a fortnight’s time.

Katy Bourne is due to attend the Sussex Police and Crime Panel meeting, starting at 11am on Friday 20 January, at County Hall in Lewes.

Questions can be about any strategic issue relating to policing in Sussex but should not be about an operational issue or a live case.

The deadline for submitting questions is noon on Thursday 12 January.

The main item on the agenda will be the review of the police and crime commissioner’s draft Police and Crime Plan 2017-21.

Residents are encouraged to suggest areas that the plan – and Sussex Police – should focus on.

Other items on the agenda include the proposed precept – the part of the council tax bill that pays for policing – and an update on the Chief Constable’s progress in implementing the new local policing model.

Questions can be submitted in writing to pcp@westsussex.gov.uk or by telephoning 0330 222 2542.

The meeting will be webcast live at www.eastsussex.public-i.tv/core/portal/home.

The panel is made up of councillors from 15 councils across Sussex, plus two independent members, whose role is to scrutinise the actions and decisions of the commissioner.

    I live in peacehaven and would like to ask why we don’t see any pcso anymore, seems that the local population is going up but police presence is no more, it was very reassuring a few years back when they were walking around in the evening and keeping check on the teenagers, what’s happened, why has this changed , also why has our local police station closed down when we need it now more than ever with our ever growing town
