The newly-elected Police and Crime Commissioner for Avon & Somerset, Sue Mountstevens, is consulting for her first Police & Crime Plan - and Keynsham people will have their chance to meet her next month.
PCC Sue Mountstevens will be seeking the views of Keynsham people next month
In her swearing-in speech, Ms Mountstevens pledged to introduce a Police & Crime Plan for each of the six policing districts of Bath and North East Somerset, Bristol, South Gloucestershire, North Somerset, Somerset East and Somerset West.
During January and February she is touring the six policing districts to capture as many local views as possible.
She will be meeting residents, community groups, police, local authorities, businesses and particularly victims of crime to help shape the plan.
She says her priorities are to reduce the impact that anti-social behaviour has in our communities, to prevent and reduce violence, particularly violence towards women and girls, to prevent and reduce crime, particularly burglary offences, and to ensure victims are at the heart of the criminal justice system.
The PCC will be at Keynsham Leisure Centre from 9.30am to 11.30am on Monday, February 4 before going on to Bath University and Bath One Stop Shop during the afternoon.
Consultation closes on Friday, February 22.
