Tell the police your thoughts

A PUBLIC meeting is being held for local residents to tell Lincolnshire Police about what they think about policing in Gainsborough.

At each ordinary meeting of the Authority, members of the public may ask questions on any police authority business. Questions must be submitted in advance.

Chairman of the Police Authority Mr Barry Young said it was important to know what the public think.

“The Authority remains keen to ensure that members of the public have an opportunity to raise any matters relating to Police Authority business,” he said.

“Providing people with the facility to ask questions at Police Authority meetings is just one way of doing this”.

He added: “We really are eager to take questions. However they must relate to Police Authority business, rather than operational matters which are the responsibility of the Chief Constable.”

Lincolnshire Police Authority is holding its next formal meeting at Police Headquarters, Deepdale Lane, Nettleham Nr Lincoln on Tuesday 22nd February 2011 starting at 10.30am in Conference Room C.

Questions from the public must be submitted to the Chief Executive no later than 12pm on Friday 18th February 2011. The Chief Executive can be contacted by telephone on 01522 558022 or by e-mail
