Each year the Police and Crime Commissioner, Tim Passmore stages a series of public meetings across the county.

The meetings are an opportunity for the public to ask questions of the Commissioner and the Constabulary, and to find out more about policing in the county.

Each meeting will involve a quick overview from Tim Passmore and the Chief Constable, or his deputy, and then the public will have an opportunity to ask questions. The local Inspector responsible for policing in the local area, will add operational context.

There is no need to book, please just turn up. Meetings start at 7pm and are expected to end at 8.30pm. Tea and coffee will be served from 6.40pm.
