Would-be MPs are being invited to attend a briefing about current and future policing issues in Leicestershire.
The event, which takes place next Monday (16th March), will also provide prospective parliamentary candidates the chance to ask questions of the Police and Crime Commissioner Sir Clive Loader and the Force’s Chief Constable Simon Cole.
Those considering standing in the forthcoming General; Election will hear an presentation from the Chief abut the recent changes to the structure of policing services in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland, and to hear details of the force’s current operational performance.
Sir Clive will explain his priorities within the current police and crime plan and how he scrutinises the performance of the force on behalf of the public.
The briefing, to be held at Force Headquarters in Enderby from 6pm to 8pm, is open to all party political and independent would-be candidates.
Sir Clive said: “My role is to represent the people of Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland, so being able to meet with potential candidates and share with them some of the issues and concerns I know local people have is really important.”
Chief Constable Cole said: “In recent months there have been some major changes to the way the force delivers policing, and during the next four years this will continue.
“This session will be an opportunity for potential candidates, from all political parties, to hear about the future of the force and our current priorities. We will also be able to answer any questions would-be candidates may have about policing issues.”
