Chief's opinion gathering tour visits Forest Fields, Nottingham
Chief Constable Julia Hodson switched her focus to the city this week as she continued her opinion-gathering tour of Nottinghamshire. Earlier this month, the Chief announced a series of trips to visit various groups in the county to ask them for their feedback about policing. This week she joined two Nottingham beat teams at meetings they regularly attend to talk about the issues affecting the communities they look after. Ms Hodson explained: "It's essential the police are visible, accessible and responsive to everyone in Nottinghamshire and that includes me. I want to learn how people feel about safety in their neighbourhood, from as many of the varied communities in the county as possible, and discuss how we can improve their quality of life. "Collecting feedback from public groups such as the ones I will visit in Nottingham over the next few weeks will be crucial in helping to shape some tough decisions against a backdrop of unprecedented financial restraints." The Chief joined the Forest Fields beat team for the lunch-time curry buffet at the Forest Fields Community Centre, in Sturton Street, Nottingham, today (October 28). Hear her and chair of the Pakistan Forum Michael Ilyas explain how the police and community are working together to beat antisocial behaviour and make the area a safe place to live, work and visit.
