Yeovil Express: Police crime commissioner to visit Chard Police crime commissioner to visit Chard

PEOPLE in Chard and Ilminster can put their questions to Avon and Somerset Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens when she visits the area next week.

Ms Mountstevens and acting chief constable (ACC) John Long will be at the Guildhall in Chard between 6.30-8.30pm on Tuesday (May 27) to give people the opportunity to have their say on policing in their communities.

She said: “I have previously visited Chard on one of my community days meeting with the Deputy Mayor, young people and hosting a public drop-in session at Eleos Café.

“I am delighted to be returning to meet more of the residents of South Somerset for them to share their policing questions with myself and the chief constable.”

The session will include an overview of policing in South Somerset by area Superintendent Geoff Wessell, all of which will be followed by questions and answers.

Anyone with any questions can also email in advance pcc@avonandsome rset.pnn.police.uk

Maybe a good question would be precisely what a PCC's job in life actually is, other than spending shedloads of money on non-policing matters, that couldn't be handled by a senior police officer who, unlike most PCC's, at least has a thorough working knowledge of the police needs in his area, and the associated problems generated by continual budgeted restrictions. A point recently raised in the national press.
