There will be a short presentation from both the PCC and the Chief Constable looking at the work underway to address community safety and crime prevention in the area.

Residents will then be invited to ask questions and raise any concerns about safety in their area to help ensure resources are allocated to where they are needed most.

Mr Matthews said: “This is a great opportunity for people in Leicester to meet both those setting the policing priorities and those delivering them.  They can ask questions of me, the Chief Constable and their local neighbourhood policing team.

“It’s important that we tell people what we are doing to meet their policing needs and the work we are doing as part of the ongoing crime prevention strategy to make their communities safer.

“One of my priorities as Commissioner is to understand people’s different challenges in their local area so we can design solutions together. It is important we get it right for everyone and you can help us make a difference by sharing your concerns.”

Anyone wishing to book a space for this meeting, or who has a question that they would like answered during meeting, is asked to email or call 0116 229 8980.

Remaining spaces will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
