Hospital staff, patients and visitors will have the chance of posing topical questions about crime and safety during a police feedback event.
Leicestershire Police and Crime Commissioner Lord Willy Bach will be joined by Deputy Chief Constable Rob Nixon at the LRI Restaurant at Leicester Royal Infirmary on Friday, August 31.
The event, which takes place between 12pm and 2pm, is part of a series of ‘meet and greet’ events under the ‘What Matters to You’ engagement programme to encourage local people to share their concerns about crime and antisocial behaviour.
The PCC has pledged to take action on issues which have a detrimental impact on people’s lives and has already organised a series of multiagency meetings to help solve priorities raised during his feedback tour.
“We’re hoping to attract a whole range of people to this event from hospital staff and patients through to visitors and their families,” said the PCC.
“Our ‘What Matters to You’ programme is all about catching busy people as they go about their daily lives and giving them a chance to air their opinions when ordinarily they have little time to do so. This is why we visit supermarkets, shopping centres and meeting places.
“I’m quite clear that our engagement work is followed up with positive action and so this really is a great chance to cast a spotlight on your community at the highest level.”
Events are held across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland and vary from ‘Q & A’ style meetings to more informal community sessions. In addition to fielding questions, the PCC and Chief Constable provide brief updates about safety in the area.
