PCC on walkabout in Hinckley

Leicestershire Police and Crime Commissioner Lord Willy Bach will be out and about in Hinckley next week, meeting local community groups and businesses to discuss local policing issues.

The PCC, who will be joined by his Deputy Kirk Master, members of the local policing team and others, will take part in a group discussion at the Wykin and District Social Club organised by the SWAN Group.  After this, he will travel to Aston Firs Gypsy and Traveller Site where he will meet up with PS Neil Whittle and local residents to discuss their crime and community safety concerns.

The visit will take place on Wednesday 5 December, starting at 9.30am.

Willy Bach said: “Getting out and about, meeting local people from different areas and with different issues, is what makes this job so interesting.  It gives me the chance to hear directly from those affected what they feel about policing and community safety where they live or work.

“That provides a more accurate picture of any problems and gives me the opportunity to explain what has been done in response to issues in the town.

“But community safety is a team effort and I’m delighted to have the support of our local Councillors during this visit. Together we will listen and consider the best solutions to the problems which impact on community life.” 

The Patch Walk will run from 9.30am until 1pm.

Ends
