Chance for High Peak residents to 'meet' Derbyshire PCC

High Peak residents are being invited to virtually meet Derbyshire's Police and Crime Commissioner to discuss crime and policing. 

A spokesperson for Hardyal Dhindsa says he'll "shine a spotlight on the work he is undertaking to improve safety for local people and highlight some of the key achievements over the past 12 months". 

The virtual events will take place across all Derbyshire districts and will enable residents to raise any concerns about crime or policing in their district, as well as learn about how partners are working together to increase police visibility and support victims of crime.

Attendees will also hear updates on the Commissioner's forthcoming budget and the recently-launched Operation Derbyshire, which aims to highlight the good work going on to address top priorities for the public including speeding, antisocial behaviour and rural, wildlife and heritage crime.

Mr Dhindsa said: "Some of the most exciting improvements I've made since being elected as PCC have been instigated by our communities and I cannot stress how valuable my engagement events are for unearthing and solving local issues.

"Over the last few years, we've really listened to what people have told us and have responded positively to issues that impact on quality of life and public confidence. I'm determined to keep the conversation going which is why I've launched a series of virtual events across the county to safely exchange views and present some of the good work already happening to improve lives."

The High Peak's meeting will be on Thursday 11 March from 6pm until 7.30pm. To book a place, visit www.derbyshire-pcc.gov.uk/Meet

Police and Crime Commissioner elections, delayed from last year, are also due to take place on 6 May - although this is still subject to change due to the coronavirus pandemic.
