Mr Paxton will be on-line between 6.30pm and 8pm to answer any questions about policing or local issues.

Mr Paxton said: 'I held a web chat towards the end of last year. It was hugely popular and gave me a valuable insight into the thoughts and concerns of lots of people in our communities.

'Policing in Suffolk is undergoing a great deal of change as we find ways to make the financial savings required by the government. Despite this, we are continuing to reduce crime, and local people tell us they are happy with our services.

'This is great, but I know there are always things we can do better and areas that people would like us to address. These events are excellent ways of me hearing about these issues.

'I would encourage lots of people to log on tomorrow and join the chat.'
