Rugbeians are being offered the opportunity to share their views on policing, community safety and how it should be funded at Rugby Baptist Church next week.
The ‘Your Police, Your Views’ event is being organised by Police and Crime Commissioner Philip Seccombe with the help of Rugby Street Pastors. Members of the public are being encouraged to come along and hear about the work of the Police and Crime Commissioner and take part in a question-and-answer session.
Representatives from Warwickshire Police’s Safer Neighbourhood Teams for Rugby will also be on hand.
The free event takes place in the Community Centre on Regent Place between 6.30pm and 8.30pm on Monday 7 November. It’s your chance to learn more about the work of the Commissioner and share your views on how Warwickshire Police is performing.
The meeting will also give people across the borough the chance to feed back on how the budget for policing should be spent to address local priorities.
Warwickshire Police and Crime Commissioner Philip Seccombe said: “I launched the ‘Your Police, Your Views’ programme earlier this year to get as much feedback from the public as possible. It’s vital that I get a good understanding of what’s working, what needs improvement and where spending should be prioritised, ahead of setting the budget for policing.
“I’m pleased to be able to hold this event in Rugby to give people an opportunity to come along and raise issues face-to-face, as well as hearing about the work that is being undertaken to improve policing, reduce crime and keep communities safe.
“I’m grateful to Rugby Street Pastors for helping to organise the meeting and I’d encourage everyone who can to come along.”
