Local residents are again being encouraged to submit questions they have about local policing to their PCC, ahead of the next Facebook Live video with the Chief Constable on Wednesday 15th May.
Over the course of the 30-minute live video, the PCC and Chief Constable will discuss questions raised by local people based on a number of key themes including Mental Health awareness week (13th – 19th May), rural crime and serious violence.
Speaking ahead of the live webchat, PCC Sue Mountstevens said: “As your voice in policing, it’s important that I hear from you about what local policing issues matter to you the most.
“I can then put your questions to the Chief Constable, to be answered immediately.
“We’ve once again selected some very timely topics and I look forward to hearing what residents have to say.
“These bi-monthly live webchats are your opportunity to address your policing questions directly to the Chief Constable.
“I look forward to receiving your questions over the coming weeks and do hope that you will be able to join us live, at 5pm on Wednesday, 15 May.”
Chief Constable Andy Marsh, responsible for day-to-day operational policing, direction and control of the Constabulary’s officers and staff, added: “You continue to put forward some really interesting topics for the Facebook Live including questions about domestic abuse, burglary and knife crime.
“I continue to be impressed by your questions and delighted to be able to answer them. It’s important that we are as open as possible with the communities we serve and it’s vital we hear your concerns, so I would encourage you to send in your questions.”
You can submit your questions via firstname.lastname@example.org or 01278 646188 by 9th May.
You can also send us your questions on Facebook or Twitter, using the hashtag #PCCInConvo.
