SUFFOLK police chiefs are asking the public to have their say at a series of meetings starting today.

The meetings are being held across the county to outline the vision for the constabulary's future detailing a number of projects underway.

People will be given the chance to put their questions to the Chief Constable, other chief officers and Police Authority members and gain an insight into how officers have dealt with the priorities that matter to local people.

Chief Constable, Simon Ash, said: “I am looking forward to attending all of the district meetings - I want to hear first hand what local people have got to say about policing in their area.

“This will allow us to take full account of people's views as we make decisions about the policing priorities for the county.”

Gulshan Kayembe, Chair of Suffolk Police Authority, added: “By coming along, members of the public can have a direct impact on reducing crime, building safer communities, and improving the quality of life in their neighbourhood.”

The meetings are planned for:

- Suffolk Coastal, September 29 starting at 7pm at Orwell High School, Felixstowe.

- Ipswich, September 30 starting at 7 pm at University Campus Suffolk, Waterfront Building.

- Mid Suffolk, October 6 starting at 7 pm at Debenham Leisure Centre, Gracechurch Street.

- Forest Heath, October 7 starting at 7 pm at Heath Court Hotel, Newmarket.

- St. Edmundsbury, October 8 starting at 7 pm at Castle Manor School, Haverhill.

- Babergh, October 12 starting at 7 pm at Hadleigh Town Hall, Hadleigh.

- Waveney, October 14 starting at 7 pm at Kirkley Community High School, Lowestoft.

For those people who cannot attend but would like to give their views, a public survey is available online at www.suffolk.police.uk or www.suffolkpoliceauthority.org.uk
