New police boss at Rodmill meeting

A meeting between Eastbourne residents and the new Police and Crime Commissioner will now take place on February 20.

The meeting was previously advertised as being on February 15.

Commissioner Katy Bourne will meet residents when she attends the Quality Streets Event in Hanover Court in Rodmill Road between 3-5pm.

Police and other local community safety organisations will also be at the co-ordinated session to discuss priority issues in the area and how they are dealt with.

As well as discussing local issues and concerns, residents will have an opportunity to talk about the Commissioner’s policy priorities and local objectives, as set out in her draft Police & Crime Plan after she was elected last November.

Commissioner Bourne said, “I want residents to know I am an accessible commissioner and a strong voice for local people in the fight against crime.”
