Policing Changes Revealed At Public Events In Leicestershire With Live Follow Up By Ben Jackson From BBC Radio Leicester
20th April 2011

Policing is facing a period of great change. The current unprecedented financial situation means that, inevitably, some police services will be delivered differently. Within the next twelve months, the Government is proposing to abolish Police Authorities and replace them with directly elected Police and Crime Commissioners.

Despite the challenges posed by this new landscape both the Police Authority and the Constabulary remain focussed on further improvement of the policing services provided for the people and businesses of Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

That is why we are holding a number of events to give you the opportunity to hear how we are proposing to tackle the challenges ahead.

We would be pleased if you would join us, bringing friends and colleagues if you wish.

Information, in the form of short presentations, will be provided on the financial horizon; the proposed changes to police governance; force performance; efficiency plans and changes in the way policing may be delivered in the future.

These presentations will be followed by Public Questions, hosted by Ben Jackson from BBC Radio Leicester, when you can raise any issues or concerns you may have.

Each event starts at 6.30pm (light refreshments from 6.00pm) and will finish by 8.30pm. The dates and venues are as follows:

Tuesday 24 May 2011 County Hall, Glenfield, Leicester LE3 8RA Thursday 16 June 2011 Rutland County Council, Catmose, Oakham, Rutland, LE15 6HP Monday 27 June 2011 Town Hall, Town Hall Square, Leicester, LE1 9BG Thursday 14 July 2011 Police Headquarters, St Johns, Enderby, Leicester, LE19 2BX If you would like to come along, simply call us on 0116 229 8986 or e-mail us at police.authority@leicestershire.pnn.police.uk providing your name, a contact number and your venue of choice. For your convenience, please let us know if you have any special requirements such as an induction loop or disabled access.

There is no need to advise if you are unable to attend. However if you do accept the invitation and then find you are not able to come, please let us know.

We look forward to seeing you.

Chairman, of the Police Authority Chief Constable
