Have your say about crime and community safety in Thaxted and Uttlesford

The next Police and Crime Commissioner public meeting discussing local crime and community safety issues will take place in Thaxted on Thursday April 24.

Nick Alston said: "We’ve had an excellent series of public meetings in all parts of Essex over the last year and a half, and we’re looking to build on those events. I encourage everyone who lives in Uttlesford to come along to our next event and raise the issues that matter to them.

"We provide the very latest crime figures at the meetings, publishing these on our website too. We explore the facts and context around any crime trends, with briefings from the local Essex Police District Commander, Chief Inspector Richard Melton, and the Community Safety Partnership. Everyone attending the meeting can put their questions directly to the police, the community safety team, and to me. I will also ask challenging questions of the police and council, as well as highlighting some of the excellent work that is taking place.

"If you care about keeping your community as safe as it can possibly be, please come along and get involved.”

The next event is scheduled for:
