John seeks public’s views on crime in their area
4:40pm Sunday 16th September 2012 in News
THE Conservative candidate to become the Cheshire Police and Crime Commissioner has launched a new consultation about local crime and policing issues.
John Dwyer has sent the survey to the 233 town and parish councils across the area with each parish being given the opportunity to express their views and priorities.
John is a former Assistant Chief Constable of Cheshire and has been meeting stakeholders and local people as he researches what the public want from their new Police and Crime Commissioner.
John said: “I am determined the creation of this post will ensure police priorities are the public’s priorities. This new role is designed to give people a visible and accountable champion for their views on local policing and crime.”
“I believe parish and town councils are close to their communities and have a major role to play in informing the new Police and Crime Commissioner about what the priorities are.”
