Cheshire's Police & Crime Commissioner, David Keane was at Chester Town Hall Square yesterday (14th June) finding out what you really think about policing in the county.

Armed with your views, David Keane will develop a Police and Crime Plan for Cheshire which set out the future of policing in the county for the next four years.

The event at Chester is part of this six-week consultation where the Commissioner will listen to what you think should be a priority for policing in Cheshire.

David Keane said: "I really enjoyed getting out meeting members of the public and hearing what they have to say. It was no surprise to me that people I met seemed genuinely interested in policing and how it affects them; it re-enforced to me the importance of listening to the public.

"A lot of people who took part in the consultation said they wanted more officers out on the beat, while others were keen to see a reduction in crime and reoffending.

"Your thoughts and ideas are crucial in helping me build on my vision of future policing for the next four years and I will be taking these suggestions on board to make sure the Constabulary delivers policing you really want."

If you're attending shows and events across the county over the coming months, such as the Cheshire Show, make sure you get involved in the consultation and take the time to join the conversation on policing.

The consultation started on 14th June in Chester and continues across the county until 26th July 2016.

The details of the next events across the county are:

  • Bolesworth International Horse Trials - Bolesworth Castle, Tattenhall, Cheshire, CH3 9HQ. Thursday 16th June to Sunday 19th June, 10am to 4pm
