Lincolnshire Police to face Question Time

As seen on TV: The Lincolnshire Police Authority is hosting a BBC-like Question Time event to answer public’s questions on policing and community issues.

A panel of Lincolnshire Police Authority members will be answering the public’s concerns about policing and community issues in a Question Time event in May.

The first Question Time event will be hosted by former Yorkshire Television and BBC Lincolnshire presenter Alan Hardwick.

The first programme will not have a studio audience, but will be recorded and broadcast on both Force and Authority websites, and on YouTube as well.

“Ultimately we would like to produce and record a series of debates on policing that will feature a panel of experts and an audience of Lincolnshire residents,” said Police Authority Chairman Barry Young.

Young will be joined on the panel by Authority Vice Chairman John Cooke, Deputy Chief Constable Neil Rhodes, and another unnamed Force representative.

If you would like to put through a question for the event, you should submit it before May 18, either through the Authority’s website or via text message at 07789 176 162. Questions can be anonymous, although a name and location would be preferred.
