Nottinghamshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner Paddy Tipping will join Chief Constable Craig Guildford and faith leaders from across the county next week for the first in a series of positive community discussion events.
The Interfaith Community Listening Event will be held on Monday (16 March) at the New Art Exchange in Gregory Boulevard, Nottingham, and aims to bring together faith leaders from across Nottinghamshire to raise issues of concern among their communities and promote positive discussion.
The event is the first of many to bring communities together across Nottinghamshire and give faith leaders a platform to voice their opinions and concerns and help the Force identify positive action and improvements.
Mr Tipping said: “I’m looking forward to this event and bringing together faith leaders to discuss the priorities they see as vital to protecting their communities.
“Community organisations and faith groups contribute so much to the wellbeing of our diverse communities in Nottinghamshire and I am absolutely committed to strengthening these interfaith relations at all levels, as well as supporting their work and ensuring their voice is heard.
“I would like to thank those faith and community organisations who have worked with my office to organise this important event. I hope it promotes an open and honest dialogue and helps us understand the unique problems affecting each of our communities and how we can overcome these issues.”
The event will be held between 5.30pm and 9pm.
