Police summit

High Peak residents will be able to have their say on policing when this year’s public consultation on policing issues arrives in Buxton next week.

On Friday, June 8, representatives from Derbyshire Police Authority and Derbyshire Constabulary will be on hand between 10am and 2pm at Spring Gardens Shopping Centre.

They want to collect local views about policing in the area and discuss issues such as the forthcoming introduction of Police and Crime Commissioners.

Carole Brister, Chair of the Authority’s Citizen Focus Committee, said: “It’s important that people take part, so that we can take note.

“We are seeking views on local crime, anti-social behaviour and communication which helps us to carry out a health check on policing in different parts of the county.

“The information that we get from people can then be used to shape the way local policing is delivered in the future.”

The event, one of nine across the county, is supported by Police Officers, Police Community Support Officers and Special Constables as well as Police Authority members, Police Authority staff, police staff and members of partner organisations.

In addition to the survey, community safety information will be available and local officers will be on hand to give advice or discuss matters of concern.
