Calling All Residents! The Commissioner Wants to Hear Your Views On Policing
Have your say about policing in Cumbria at the ‘Ask The Commissioner’ monthly public surgeries with the Police and Crime Commissioner, Peter McCall. These sessions give local residents the opportunity to meet the Commissioner face-to-face in confidence and talk about any views, concerns or issues they may have regarding policing, crime or community safety.
Peter McCall is really keen to speak to as many people as possible across the county and comments: “Public surgeries give me a real feel for what people are experiencing out in our communities. It also helps me get a sense of what people see as the policing priorities in their local areas and while I can’t always promise to fix everything, it does help influence decision making about future policing.
“I urge people to take the opportunity to drop in for a chat. It is a key role of my job to represent the public in Policing matters, I can only do this effectively if you let me know what you think and to try and understand the issues which concern people and how policing can help.”
The ‘Ask The Commissioner’ drop-in events are held on a monthly basis at a variety of accessible venues around the county and give people direct access to chat with the Police and Crime Commissioner.
Please come along and share your views about policing in your local area on:
29th March at Charlies Café, Kendal 1-3pm,
30th April at Booths Café Keswick from 2.30-4.30pm
