“Police Priorities 2”: Next Meeting Set for Thursday 12 November

Police priorities……

The next meeting of the Bridgwater Town Council Police Priorities Forum will be held on Thursday November 12th at 1pm. The meeting will be held between representatives of the Policer and Town Councillors and will be on Zoom and subsequently available to the public. However, Town Council Leader Brian Smedley is asking members of the public to submit questions to him in advance cllrsmedley@bridgwater-tc.gov.uk.¬† Cllr Smedley said “The September meeting of the Police priorities forum had so many questions from members of the public that we couldn’t get through them all and , ironically, in the middle of questioning the Police were called away to attend an incident. This time we will include the questions held over from last time but we will start with new, current and ongoing issues. The aim of this forum is to make sure that what the Police see as ‘Priorities’ matches what the community expects. In recent weeks there’s been many¬† incidents in the town centre but also we’ve seen on the news that this isn’t just a local problem as major incidents have been occurring from right across the Avon and Somerset region whether that’s raves in Yate or House Parties in Highbridge. Mainly the people need reassurance that the Police have their priorities correct and are making the best use of the resources available to them. Please send in your questions.”
