Ron Hogg meets police officer in Durham City
Thursday, 22 November 2012
In his first day of public office following last Thursday’s election, Police and Crime Commissioner Ron Hogg has vowed to get a stronger grip on local issues.
During his doorstep campaign, the people of County Durham and Darlington raised many issues to him including the need to better address domestic abuse, hate crime and more engagement with local communities and interest groups.
Ron is keen to be the voice of the people in County Durham and Darlington and has pledged to ensure that he represents real need and concern. He wants to establish community panels to represent all constituency areas across the force area to help him to deliver against the promises that he has set out in his manifesto.
Ron said: “I want to be able to represent as many local people as possible. To do this, I want to set up community panels that will become my eyes and ears on police and crime issues.
It’s important to me that the right amount of resources is placed into tackling the issues that impact on the wellbeing of many people. These new community panels will provide the means to help me make the right decisions about police and crime priorities in local areas”.
Ron is also hosting a public consultation day on Thursday the 13th of December 2012 at the Dolphin Centre, Darlington (morning session) and at Durham Town Hall (afternoon session). He will be consulting the public about his Police and Crime Plan and the police budget. The event is free to attend and places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
If you would like to attend the public consultation day on the 13th December or you are interested in becoming a member of Ron’s community panels, please visit https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/PCC-citizenspanel and provide your details.
