Chief Constable and PCC host public forum

Residents of Somerset are invited to put their questions to Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) Sue Mountstevens and Chief Constable Andy Marsh on Tuesday 24 September 2019.

The public forum will be held at The Beach Hotel in Minehead and will be attended by the PCC, Chief Constable and local Chief Inspector Lisa Simpson.

The forum will be opened by Somerset West and Taunton Council Leader Federica Smith-Roberts before a welcome from the PCC and Chief Constable. Chief Inspector Lisa Simpson will also give a presentation on local policing to attendees. Local people will then be able to take part in an open question answer session with the PCC, Chief Constable and Chief Inspector.

Speaking ahead of the forum, PCC Sue Mountstevens said: “I am delighted to be returning to the Beach Hotel. The last time I was here topics raised by residents included the impact of burglaries in the area and views on police visibility. I hope local people will take the time to ask us questions once again.

“Listening to local people’s views about policing is a vital part of my role as PCC. Residents tell me that they see these meetings as an opportunity to share their concerns and to help the communities they live in become safer and stronger.”

Chief Constable Andy Marsh added: “I welcome the opportunity to discuss the topics that are of upmost importance to local people. These public forums are a fantastic opportunity to hear, first-hand, how residents feel about their local police service. It is so important for us to talk to the community about the challenges we are facing in policing and how they can help us create a safer place for local people to live.”

The forum will be held at The Exmoor Meeting Room, The Beach Hotel, The Avenue, Minehead, TA24 5AP and will take place between 7pm – 9pm on Tuesday 24th September 2019.
