Commissioner invites people to 'Have their Say' on policing in Bassetlaw

Nottinghamshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner Caroline Henry is inviting local residents and businesses to ‘Have their Say’ on policing in Bassetlaw as she pushes firmly ahead with the development of her ‘unapologetically tough’ Police and Crime Plan.

The Commissioner, who has been clear that she will always listen to the views of local residents, is hosting a public meeting on Thursday, 12 August in Retford.  Starting at 6.30pm, people are invited to apply for a place to attend in person or alternatively they can join the meeting virtually from 7pm.

Those people interested in attending are being invited to enter a ballot for tickets – or alternatively tune in live on social media for the live stream.

The Commissioner has also developed a survey dedicated to Bassetlaw residents and businesses, asking for their thoughts on policing and community safety in the area.

Commissioner Henry said: “I am determined to be known as a listening Commissioner and I can only do that effectively if people tell what their concerns are.

“As I develop my Police and Crime Plan I want to hear local people’s views on how safe they feel where they live and work.  My Plan will be unapologetically tough on crime and anti-social behaviour.  It will leave no stone unturned in our fight against petty crime and vandalism in our town centres.

“I will work hard on a range of measures to make it difficult for those who seek to cause issues.  Most importantly, from the feedback I have received already, I will continue to push the police for more officers on our streets as we seek to make Worksop and Retford safe.

This is the second in series of similar meetings, with others planned for every local authority area.

Those wishing to attend in person are asked to click on this link to be entered into a private ballot for places.
