Norfolk police chiefs will be in Diss tonight to answer questions from the public.

Police and crime commissioner Lorne Green and Chief Constable Simon Bailey will host a question-and-answer session in Diss Corn Hall, starting at 6pm.

The event is aimed at giving people the opportunity to share views, issues or concerns about crime and policing in their area.

The regular events are part of the crime commissioner’s ongoing pledge to give the public access to the county’s senior officers, while ensuring he and the wider police service are visible, accessible and accountable.

“As Norfolk’s police and crime commissioner, it is important I continue to listen and take on board any concerns people may have about policing in the county,” said Mr Green, pictured.

“It’s public feedback that helps me fulfil the different responsibilities which come with my role, including setting crime reduction priorities, providing victim support services and holding our police force to account on behalf of the communities it serves.”

In 2018, five question-and-answer sessions were hosted across the county, with events in Watton, Downham Market, Great Yarmouth, Cromer and Taverham.

Mr Green added: “My undertaking has been, and remains, to give every man, woman and child in our county the opportunity to influence local policing where they live.

“The forthcoming session in Diss completes a full cycle of events, taking in each of the county’s districts.”
