Suffolk’s Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) will visit Hadleigh next week.

PCC Tim Passmore and Chief Constable Douglas Paxton will be concluding their tour of the county next week, with a visit to Hadleigh.

The Chief and PCC will set up base with the mobile police station on Tuesday, September 2, and will be available for members of the public to speak about any issues.

Officers from the local safer neighbourhood team will be there to answer local queries, as well as crime reduction officers and representatives from Suffolk Safekey.

Members of the public will also be able to take away a new home safety guide which has been produced by the Constabulary and supported by the PCC.

The mobile police station will be set up in the car park of Morrisons supermarket on Calais Street and will be open from midday to 5pm.

Mr Passmore and Mr Paxton will be present from 1pm to 4pm with the public encouraged to go along and speak with the team about any policing or community matter.

Mr Paxton said: “This is the final event in the ‘on tour’ calendar this year.

“All of our visits have gone extremely well, with lots of positive feedback coming from the people we have spoken with.

“It has also been a great opportunity to listen to local concerns and issues from communities right across the county, so I am looking forward to hearing from the people of Hadleigh.”

Mr Passmore said: “Having direct contact with the people of Suffolk that I represent is extremely important to me.

“I make myself available to anyone who needs to speak to me through one-to-one surgeries or via e-mail and on the phone, but it is equally important to have these opportunities for people to just turn up and have a conversation with us.

“I do hope people will accept this invite to come and find out more about policing. Douglas and I will be pleased to discuss any matter that arises.

“Public engagement is a key responsibility for every PCC and covering such a large geographical area, this is quite a challenge so we have set up meetings and roadshows in each district and borough.”
