Nottinghamshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner Paddy Tipping is to hold a public meeting this month to gather feedback from local women and girls on his latest budget plans and his strategy to make the county safer.
The meeting takes place at the Nottingham Mechanics Institute on Tuesday, January 14 at 6pm and will offer female 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 and specifically aims to gather the female point of view.
Mr Tipping said, “I pledged during my election campaign that I would give extra priority to domestic violence and crimes against women and girls and I am looking forward to hearing what they have to say about policing. I hope both individuals and groups take this opportunity.”
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.
The meeting is open to individuals and representatives from women’s organisations 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.
