Committed to being open and transparent in conducting her duties, Joy Allen will be hosting her Public Accountability Meeting next month and is encouraging people from across County Durham and Darlington to get involved.
The Public Accountability Meeting gives residents the opportunity to put their questions about off-road bikes to the Chief Constable and her senior team next month.
Next month’s meeting will be on Wednesday 24 November and will focus on off-road bikes and Durham Constabulary’s response to combat nuisance and illegal bikers.
A full recording of the meeting, including questions and answers will then be uploaded on YouTube, with the desire to live stream meetings in the future.
In advance of the meeting, please send your questions to General.EnquiriesPCC@durham-pcc.gov.uk including your name and address with your question.
Joy Allen, Durham Police and Crime Commissioner said:“ Anti-social behaviour is a top concern for residents and many of them have told me that off road bikes are terrorising their communities, causing extensive damage to green spaces and play areas and parents are scared of letting children out alone to play fearful that they may be run down by these illegally driven bikes.
“This is why I have chosen the subject of off-road bikes as my next public accountability session to hold the Chief and the Force to account for policing in the local area. This is an ideal opportunity for residents across the County to share their concerns and ask the questions that they want answers to.
“This new progressive approach streaming the public accountability meetings will enable me to give residents the opportunity to raise what matters most to them so we together can make County Durham and Darlington stronger, safer and more resilient to crime.”
The PCC is encouraging anyone with questions around off-road bikes to submit them before 31st October.
