Sussex PCC to host virtual public meeting with Crawley residents

12/10/2020

Crawley residents are being given the chance to pose questions to Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner, Katy Bourne, Chief Inspector Shane Baker (District Commander for Crawley & Mid Sussex), Henry Smith MP, and Ashwin Soni of the Crawley Interfaith Network.

Questions can be about any issue relating to policing in Sussex but should avoid mentioning specific cases which cannot be publicly discussed.

Written questions must be submitted by midnight on Friday 30 October to give enough preparation time ahead of the live discussion.

Mrs Bourne said; “This is an opportunity for Crawley residents’ voices to be heard. We know that reports of anti-social behaviour, business crime and even serious organised crime, have risen over the last year so I hope that residents will actively engage with this event.

“The diversity of the Crawley community is something to be celebrated and we don’t want anybody to feel overlooked in this discussion.

“If you are living in the Crawley area and would like to raise a concern, please submit a question. I want to hear what you have to say and have brought together a panel that will be able to hopefully answer your queries and offer some reassurance.”

Questions can be submitted in writing to pcc@sussex-pcc.gov.uk.

The meeting will be held virtually, starting at 11.00am on Friday 13 November and will be webcast live here: https://sussex-pcc.public-i.tv/core/portal/home
