Derbyshire Police and Crime Commissioner Hardyal Dhindsa is inviting members of the public and local businesses to come and find out what action he has taken to improve safety in Derbyshire.
Following the conclusion of his #D383 tour, in which he covered ever town and village in the county, the Commissioner has pencilled in a series of community events to inform the public of his key findings and highlight the action he has taken after carefully listening to their concerns.
The meetings have been scheduled to take place in all nine districts of Derbyshire and will invite local residents, businesses and community organisations including Neighbourhood Watch, Rotary Clubs and Parish Council representatives to meet with the PCC and his team.
“Listening to local people is so important but it was always my priority to identify solutions to the problems raised and act upon them,” explained Mr Dhindsa.
“One of the successes from my tour has been the strong partnerships it has encouraged with other agencies and we are now working closely with a host of organisations to jointly respond to problems that none of us can solve alone.
“These new events will update residents on the action we have taken to address the issues they have raised and how we intend to build on this work in the future. I want to reassure our communities that we will continue to act on their problems now and in the future. We have already seen many successes, and this will be fed back to our communities during these events.”
The meetings will be held on weekdays between 6.30pm and 8pm to enable those who have work commitments to attend. The PCC and his team will also provide an opportunity for attendees to ask further questions.
Meetings will take place from 6.30pm - 8pm.
