Police and Crime Commissioner Nick Alston will host the public meeting on Friday February 8 to discuss his Police and Crime Plan for Essex.

He said: “It is important that crime continues to fall in Essex – that we have fewer victims of crime and fewer people living in fear of crime. I am committed to local solutions for local problems, and to ensuring that police, partner agencies, the voluntary sector and residents work together as closely as possible to keep our communities safe.

“The meeting will be two hours long. We’d love people to attend all the meeting, but if you can only make part of it, please still come along. I want your views to be part of the debate about how we can best keep the streets and countryside of Essex safe.

“The first ever Police and Crime Plan for Essex is also out for public consultation. It’s your plan, and I want to hear your comments before it’s reviewed by the Police and Crime Panel later this month.”

The meeting will be held in Basildon and will also look at how crime is tackled in the town.

Chief Inspector Glen Pavelin will join Mr Alston in the meeting which will be in St George’s Suite, The Basildon Centre between noon and 2pm.
