Residents’ views invited by Police Authority

Question time: Police are accepting people’s questions and opinions as part of their formal meeting.

Lincolnshire Police Authority will be holding a formal meeting at Police Headquarters on July 22, and local residents are invited to ask questions.

Those wanting to put their questions to the authority will have to send in the query in advance.

Chairman of the Police Authority Barry Young said: “The Authority remains keen to ensure that members of the public have an opportunity to raise any matters relating to Police Authority business.

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

“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.

“Individuals can submit their question by writing to the Chief Executive or speaking to him over the telephone – it’s as easy as that.

“We have set aside 20 minutes at each of our ordinary meetings to consider questions from the public and we hope to see a positive response.”

Questions can be submitted by either email or by contacting the Chief Executive before 12pm July 12 on 01522 558022.
