Melton Mowbray has its say on community policing

Community safety will be top of the agenda as Leicestershire Police and Crime Commissioner Lord Willy Bach hosts his latest public engagement event at Melton Mowbray.

The PCC will be joined by Chief Constable Simon Cole at the ‘What Matters to You?’ meeting in which they will spend two hours fielding public questions on crime and policing concerns.

The event takes place Tuesday 7 August at Twin Lakes, Melton Spinney Road from 10am until 1pm and is the latest in a series of public ‘meet and greet’ events to encourage residents to provide feedback on their local policing service to help improve the response to localised crime and antisocial behaviour. They also raise awareness on the role of the PCC, how he can help drive down crime and explain current initiatives underway to make life better across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

Willy Bach said: “I’m really looking forward to visiting Melton Mowbray and finding out what local people have to say about their area, both good and bad.

“We’ve held a number of ‘What Matters to You?’ events already and they’ve been invaluable in highlighting problems which cause a headache for residents and have a detrimental impact on quality of life. During the meeting, Simon and I will be joined by members of the local neighbourhood policing team who will be able to follow up any concerns with positive action.  

“As we are in the midst of the school holidays, I’m hoping for a big turnout.”
