Take part in our policing 'question time' event in Honiton
PCC Tony Hogg and senior police officers will be taking part in a public question time event in Honiton later this month (March 31st - 6.30pm)
East Devon residents have the opportunity to quiz Devon and Cornwall’s crime commissioner and senior police officers later this month.
Honiton’s Beehive Centre will stage the ‘Question Time’ style event on Tuesday March 31st (6.30pm - 8pm).
Alongside PCC Tony Hogg will be the Deputy Chief Constable Bill Skelly and local police representative, Inspector Simon Weare.
East Devon’s policing and community safety issues are likely to top the agenda, and audience members will have the opportunity to ask any questions they want, ranging from the long term strategy of the force to the more local ‘day to day’ issues that concern them.
“The PCC role is all about giving the public more say about policing and what is important to them” said Tony Hogg
“Because police budgets are being cut we have to prioritise what we do and I encourage any opportunity for local people to tell us what they think.”
“The demands on policing are greater than ever at a time when resources are stretched to the limit. For example we have to tackle child sexual exploitation and cyber crime while trying to maintain more traditional policing and keeping ‘bobbies on the beat’. "
“No policing topics are off limits for this event, and I really hope local people take the opportunity to come along and take part. I expect, and welcome, lively and thought provoking debate.”
