PCC Barry Coppinger wants to hear your views on policing.
Cleveland’s Police and Crime Commissioner will be going ‘on-line’ this Thursday evening (February 28) to take questions from the public on his role and priorities—and learn about their concerns and ideas for the future of policing in the area.
The ‘Ask Your Commissioner’ session between 6.00pm and 8.00pm marks the start of a series of interactive web chats which Commissioner Barry Coppinger is introducing as part of his commitment to ensure that policing in Cleveland reflects the needs of local people.
He explains “Throughout the Commissioner elections—and since coming into office in November—I have been determined that I really will be the people’s representative in overseeing how policing is delivered in Cleveland…and that means listening to the public.
“That was why I introduced the ‘Your Force, Your Voice initiative—the biggest public consultation exercise ever undertaken for Cleveland Police—which involves me meeting with people in every one of the Force’s Neighbourhood Policing team areas.
“Using on-line communications is a natural extension of the initiative and hopefully will enable people who might not be able to get along to a public meeting to ask me questions and give me their views.”
‘Ask Your Commissioner’ is part of the Cleveland Police ‘Community Click’ programme of web chats which cover a wide range of policing departments…last week Chief Constable Jacqui Cheer took part.
Anyone wanting to put a question to the Commissioner, please access the Ask Your Commissioner webpage.
