Public meeting with crime commissioner to be held in Colchester
10:14am Tuesday 10th September 2013 in News
KNIVES, drugs, domestic abuse and the town’s nightlife will all be discussed when the police and crime commissioner comes to town.
Nick Alston has chosen the topics because of some of the issues in Colchester and will be discussing these and more on Thursday during a public meeting.
It will be held in the YMCA Activity Centre in Magdalen Street, Colchester, for two hours from 4.30pm and everyone is invited to attend.
A spokesman for the PCC said: “The PCC aims to hold a public meeting in every district of Essex twice a year, working with colleagues from Essex Police, community safety partnerships, councils, partner organisations and the voluntary sector.
“These are important events for everyone who cares about the way their community is policed and who wants to know about crime in their area."

Mr Alston said: “It is important crime continues to fall in Essex – that we have fewer victims of crime and fewer people living in fear of crime.
“I am committed to the principle of local solutions for local problems, and to ensuring that police, partner agencies, the voluntary sector and residents work together as closely as possible to keep our communities safe.
"We’d love people to attend all the meeting, but if you can only make part of it, please still come along.
“I want your views to be part of the debate about how we can best keep the streets and countryside of Essex safe.”
