CHESHIRE'S chief constable and police and crime commissioner will be in Northwich for a public question session in November.

CC Darren Martland and PCC David Keane will be hosting a series of Question Time-style events across the county in the coming weeks.

Residents will have a chance to quiz the pair on local policing, including at an event in Northwich on Thursday, November 14 at 7pm.

The idea is to give residents the opportunity to talk about the issues that matter most to their communities, with questions invited.

PCC David Keane said: “The relationship between police and the public has always been vital and no more so than now when resources are stretched and the workload has grown exponentially.

“As your elected representative for policing I want to ensure that our police service is accountable, visible and is delivering your priorities.

“This is your chance to meet with us and talk to us about key issues in your community and tell us if your local area is being policed effectively.”

CC Darren Martland added: “Cheshire remains one of the safest places in the country to live, work and visit. This is thanks to the strong relationships our officers and police staff have forged with our communities to ensure that crime and anti-social behaviour is dealt with effectively.

“We rely on the public to identify any issues going on in their area and report problems such as dangerous driving, anti-social behaviour and drug dealers.

“These events provide an opportunity for local residents to share their views and opinions on policing in Cheshire and will help shape our priorities going forward.”

Details of events planned so far are:

• Ellesmere Port – Thursday, November 7, 7pm, Trinity Methodist Church, Ellesmere Port, CH65 0AT

• Northwich – Thursday, November 14, 7pm, Condate Room, Northwich Town Council, 78 Church Road, CW9 5PB
