People will be able to have their say about crime issues in Brandon at a public meeting with the area’s top police officer.

Suffolk Police chief constable Gareth Wilson will join the county’s police and crime commissioner, Tim Passmore, to host the “your police, your say” meeting at Brandon House Hotel on Thursday, May 24.

The meeting will involve a quick overview from Mr Passmore and Mr Wilson, before the public are given an opportunity to ask questions.

The inspector responsible for policing in the area will also speak.

Mr Passmore said: “Public engagement is hugely important in this role, so it is vital that I get out into the communities I serve so people can question me in an open forum.

“I do hope people will accept this invite to come and find out more about policing in the towns and villages of Forest Heath. Gareth and I will be pleased to discuss any matter that arises.

“I am hoping for an open and frank two-way dialogue, so please spread the word as I really want to encourage a good crowd.”

There is no need to book for the event, as people are encouraged to just turn up.

Tea and coffee will be served from 6.40pm, with the meeting starting at 7pm.
