The Avon and Somerset Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) Sue Mountstevens visited South Gloucestershire yesterday (Thursday 7th February) on her fourth day consulting on the area’s first Police and Crime Plan.
Residents were invited to visit the Commissioner in Patchway and Hanham to discuss their local policing priorities.
Ms Mountstevens spoke with many groups of people including students, a mother and toddler group as well as local residents in Coniston Community Centre and Hanham Library.
In the evening, Ms Mountstevens visited Hanham Youth Club where she gathered young people’s views on South Gloucestershire’s first Police and Crime Plan.
Ms Mountstevens said:
“As the first police and crime commissioner for Avon and Somerset, I want to make sure I listen to and hear from as many people as possible.”
“There has never been a Police & Crime Plan for the six policing areas of Avon and Somerset before and it is vital that the residents of South Gloucestershire have a say in their areas Plan. I need to know what is important to people so it becomes our Police and Crime Plan and together with local communities, the police and partners we are tackling the things that matter to you.”
While out on the road, Ms Mountstevens is also asking for people to tweet their policing priorities at #ourplan.
