Surrey Police’s top brass will take questions from the Waverley public at the Farnham Maltings this December as part of an annual roadshow across the county.
Police and Crime Commissioner Lisa Townsend, deputy chief constable Nev Kemp and Waverley borough commander Rob Brian will take to the Maltings stage for the Policing your Community event on Monday, December 4 from 6.30pm to 8.30pm.
Similar events will take place across the county from October 24 to January 29.
It comes at a time when there are more police officers in Surrey than ever before, but also ahead of the commissioner’s consultation on the amount of tax that residents will contribute towards policing from next year’s council tax.
Arrival for in-person events begins at 6.30pm with presentations starting at 6.45pm. Events are free to attend but residents are urged to register their attendance by selecting the link for their local event below:
For those that can’t make it, additional virtual events will take place online for each borough and district from January 8 to January 29. See more information about registering for all events at: https://surrey-pcc.gov.uk/policing-your-community
Commissioner Lisa Townsend said: “Listening to the views of local people is at the heart of my role as your Police and Crime Commissioner and strengthening the relationships between Surrey Police and residents is a key part of my Police and Crime Plan for the county. “These events will give residents an opportunity to speak to us directly about the policing issues that matter where they live, as well as hear about the progress that my office and Surrey Police are making against that Plan which is based on the priorities of the public. “It is a really exciting time, as we put more officers than ever before on the ground and aim to boost the service that residents receive. I hope that residents will join us at the event in their area so we can include their voice in our policing plans.”
Chief Constable Tim De Meyer said: “We want to provide the best possible policing service and it is extremely important that our residents are kept up to date. These events will enable us to speak to the public about current challenges and our plans for Surrey Police and are an opportunity for you to ask questions. It would be great to see as many of you there as possible.”
