PCC to host city centre "talk back" event

People enjoying the entertainment on offer during the night-time economy are being invited to share their thoughts on public safety and policing at a special city centre policing roadshow hosted by Leicestershire Police and Crime Commissioner Lord Willy Bach and Chief Constable Simon Cole.

The PCC and Chief Constable are keen to hear what local people, including the thousands of pub and club frequenters in the city, think about crime and how safe they feel on a night out.

They will be joined by Neighbourhood Policing Commander Insp Manjit Atwal, police volunteers and city-based Neighbourhood Policing Officers in the What Matters to You event on Friday 15th June where they will answer questions from residents about local problems and the community safety work underway to reduce harm.

The roadshow will run from 7.30pm until 10pm at the Clock Tower/Humberstone Gate area to capture the opinions of those enjoying a night out in the city centre.

“It’s important everyone gets the chance to have their say about crime and policing which is why we’re holding this special roadshow at night-time,” explained Willy Bach.

“The city centre is a vibrant and bustling place and I’m determined that people continue to enjoy a night out without fear of crime, violence or antisocial behaviour. I’m keen to hear what people think.”
