The Police and Crime Commissioner for Wiltshire and Swindon, Angus Macpherson, holds four Meet the Commissioner events each year.
The meetings offer the public a chance to speak to the Commissioner and to hear from him and the Chief Constable or his deputy about:
· Progress on implementing the Commissioner’s Police and Crime Plan
· Finance and value for money
· Performance of the Constabulary
At each of the quarterly meetings, Mr Macpherson invites an organisation which has made a successful bid to his Innovation Fund to come along and explain how the money is being put to good use in pursuit of one of the Commissioner’s key priorities.
A senior officer from the Neighbourhood Policing Team gives an update on policing matters in the local area.
The meetings are due to last 90 minutes and include a question and answer session where the audience can raise any points or concerns with the Commissioner and the Chief Constable or his deputy.
Refreshments will be served from 5pm before the meeting starts at 5.30pm. There is no need to book to attend. Just turn up on the evening.
Mr Macpherson said: “These meetings are open to anyone who lives in the area served by Wiltshire Police.
“I am the person accountable to the people when it comes to crime and anti-social behaviour. I hold the Chief Constable and the force to account for how they are doing the job; and the voters in turn hold me to account.
“These meetings offer a golden opportunity for me to get feedback from local audiences on current police and crime issues which will guide me when I consider updates to my Police and Crime Plan.
