PCC hosting Trowbridge voluntary and community sector workshop
11:09am Friday 1st February 2013 in News
Police and Crime Commissioner for Wiltshire and Swindon Angus Macpherson is hosting a third voluntary and community sector consultation workshop on his forthcoming Police and Crime Plan.
The event is taking place in Trowbridge at St John’s Parish Centre on February 11 from 10am-12pm.
This workshop follows similar events being held in Salisbury on January 14 and Swindon on January 29, where subjects discussed included working with victims and witnesses of crime.
The Police and Crime Plan will set the strategic direction of policing in Wiltshire and Swindon for the next five years.
As well as working with the police, it will include working with partners, such as local authorities and voluntary community sector organisations.
Mr Macpherson said: “We’ve decided to host another consultation workshop on my forthcoming Police and Crime Plan in Trowbridge as we’ve had a lot of interest and positive feedback from those who attended the sessions in Salisbury and Swindon.
“The workshops so far have been really useful to get feedback from representatives of the voluntary and community sector in Wiltshire and Swindon.
“We have limited places for the Trowbridge event so if you are from that sector and wish to attend please let my office know.”
The Commissioner and representatives from Mr Macpherson’s office are also attending Wiltshire Council Area Boards and Swindon Borough Council Locality meetings to talk to people about the forthcoming plan.
They attended meetings in January and are continuing to do so throughout February.
From February 18, members of the public will be able to give their feedback on a draft version of the plan on the PCC’s website at www.wiltshire-pcc.gov.uk.
