Sidmouth residents: have your say on policing

SIDMOUTH and Ottery residents will have the chance to have their say on policing issues at a consultation event next week.

SIDMOUTH and Ottery residents will have the chance to have their say on policing issues at a consultation event next week.

Devon and Cornwall Constabulary are hosting the meeting- the first of its kind- and hope to encourage members of the public to consider how they see police and what they would like from their local officers.

The event will also seek to challenge attitudes towards the police by engaging the public in discussions on a range of topics including: where and when would you like to see the police? How easy is it to contact the police? What services would you like to see available at police stations? How would you like the police to let you know what's going on? And what can the police do to improve your confidence in them?

The results will impact on the force's commitment to delivering the Policing Pledge.

Chief Inspector Keith Perkin, who is leading the review, said: "This is a new and innovative way of consulting with the public and we hope by involving local people in the development of local services for the future, we can further improve our visible policing and focus on providing a high quality service suitable for all our communities."

The event takes place on Monday at the Corn Exchange (formerly St George's Hall) in Exeter from 10am-3pm.
