Nottinghamshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner Paddy Tipping is to hold a public meeting next month to gather feedback from the BME community on his latest budget plans and his strategy to make the county safer.
The meeting takes place at the Nottingham Deaf Society on Tuesday, January 7 at 6pm and will offer residents an opportunity to discuss their priorities for tackling crime as well as their views on the Commissioner’s forthcoming budget.
Commissioner Tipping has pledged to refresh his Police and Crime Plan during his term in office to ensure it remains relevant to the public and reflects their needs. The public meeting is one of a series planned for the county to help the Commissioner get a better idea of local opinion across all of Nottinghamshire’s diverse communities.
During the meeting, Mr Tipping will reintroduce the main aspects of the plan which include protecting, supporting and responding to victims, witnesses and vulnerable people, spending your money wisely and focusing on crime hotspots, and will answer any questions raised by those attending.
“I am looking forward to seeing old friends and new faces,” said Mr Tipping. “When elected I said that I would be the People’s Commissioner, in effect becoming their voice. This is an opportunity for people to tell me what they feel about my Police and Crime Plan so that I can take their views on board as we make our plans for the coming year.”
The meeting is open to everyone but residents are advised to contact Jackie Nash at the Nottinghamshire Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner in advance at firstname.lastname@example.org as places are limited.
