Police and Crime Commissioner Paddy Tipping is inviting local businesses and voluntary organisations to a special event in Mansfield to give him their views on his Draft Police and Crime Plan.
They are being invited to join him and his Deputy, Chris Cutland, at the Pleasley Landmark Centre, Chesterfield Road North, Mansfield, NG19 7SP on Thursday (17 January) at 6.30pm.
The draft plan – which can be viewed here – will be discussed at the meeting, with the main focus being on Mr Tipping’s key priorities.
Mr Tipping will introduce the plan, asking for feedback from the business and volunteer community representatives and answering any questions they have.
“This is all part of our inclusive approach to consulting on the plan and the budget, and we look forward to hearing what people have to say,” the Commissioner said. “It is so important that people talk to me so that I can see what needs to be done to ensure that crime continues to fall across Nottinghamshire and that policing is delivered in the way people want.”
In line with his determination to be very much the People’s Commissioner, he urges people across the county to share their views on his priority areas and take part in his online survey by the 15 February.
His priorities include protecting, supporting and responding to victims, witnesses and vulnerable people; focusing on local areas most affected by crime and disorder; reducing the impact of substance misuse on levels of crime and antisocial behaviour; preventing offending and re-offending; improving the efficiency of criminal justice; and spending your money wisely.
Anyone working for a local business or voluntary organisation and who would be interested in attending the meeting should contact Jackie Nash at the Nottinghamshire Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner on 07525 406883 or 0115 967 0999 ext 801 2006. Alternatively, email Jackie.firstname.lastname@example.org
The Pleasley Landmark Centre meeting is the first of two similar events, the second being on Thursday 24 January at the Nottinghamshire Deaf Society in Nottingham at 6pm where, again, notice of attendance is necessary.
