Public Meetings and Street Meets 2024

This summer sees multiple opportunities for members of the public to engage with both the Police & Crime Commissioner, the Chief Constable and their local policing teams.

Street Meets

A series of informal Street Meets throughout July and August around the county have been planned so that Suffolk’s PCC Tim Passmore can listen to the concerns of the community as well as answer any questions about how he and the Constabulary are working together to ensure that Suffolk is a safe place in which to live, work, travel and invest.

Tim will be accompanied by each area’s community policing team who will be on hand to address any location specific concerns and queries.

Tim said, “Public engagement is hugely important in my role as Police and Crime Commissioner and I try to make myself available to anyone who needs to contact me but it is equally important for me to get out across the county to meet people in their own communities to discuss any policing issues they may have.

I look forward to meeting as many people as I can and I can assure you all, your comments really do help me understand what is important to you”.
