Warwickshire Police and Crime Commissioner Philip Seccombe is bringing his ‘Your Police, Your Views’ public engagement programme to Nuneaton’s The Makery on Friday 7 October.
He’ll be at the popular community hub in in the Abbeygate Shopping Centre from 10am to 12pm, taking part in a Community Safety Support Café. Mr Seccombe will be on hand to take questions from members of the public while also explaining the work he and his office do to support policing, community safety and victims.
It’s part of a three-month community engagement programme around the county, which aims to find out people’s views on policing, community safety and anti-social behaviour. Running alongside the face-to-face sessions is an online survey which aims to understand local people’s views on how policing should be funded in the year ahead.
“I’m delighted to be taking part in the Community Support Café and I look forward to meeting lots of local people at The Makery,” said Mr Seccombe. “I want to get as wide a range of views as possible through my ‘Your Police, Your Views’ survey, so the event at The Makery is a great way to be able to talk to people face-to-face.
“Listening to what the public tell about their experiences of crime and anti-social behaviour is a key part of my job. It helps me to hold Warwickshire Police to account on the public’s behalf, while also helping me identify the things that people want the police and other community safety partners to focus on most.
“I’m at the beginning of the process which will set the budget for policing for the year ahead and what people tell me through these sessions and our online poll will help shape how and on what that is spent. That’s why its vital people across Nuneaton & Bedworth have their say.
“If you are unable to come along to community support café, please do take a few minutes to fill in the survey online. It only takes a few minutes to fill in but helps me make sure that everyone has the opportunity to shape how policing is delivered in the future.”
The community support café is free and people can drop in at any time between 10am and 12pm on October 7. For those unable to attend, the ‘Your Police, Your Views’ survey can be found online at: www.warwickshire-pcc.gov.uk/yourviews/ and runs until December 16.
