Plan for More Police and Safer Streets to be discussed at public meeting

26 June 2023

Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) Donna Jones and Isle of Wight MP Bob Seely are joining forces to host a public meeting to inform Islanders about plans to reduce crime across the Isle of Wight.

The meeting will be an opportunity for Islanders to hear about the latest work being undertaken by the PCC and ask questions about the Police and Crime Plan More Police Safer Streets and other crime-related issues on the Island.

The PCC will be providing updates on action being taken to tackle anti-social behaviour, police recruitment, the new roads policing unit, how to report crime, plus the new policing model for the force – which will bring officers closer to their communities.

Islanders will also have an opportunity to raise any crime-related issues with the PCC and their Member of Parliament.

Police and Crime Commissioner Donna Jones said: “I’m delighted Bob has invited me to his public meeting. This is an opportunity for residents to raise any concerns they have about the safety of their neighbourhood directly with me.

“It is also a chance for me to explain the initiatives I am funding to reduce crime and ASB on the Island, and how I am working with the force to strengthen neighbourhood policing, bring back ‘Local Bobbies’ and ensure victims of crime get the service they deserve.”

Mr Seely said: “This event is an opportunity for Islanders to learn more about what we’re doing, as their elected representatives, to keep people safe on the Isle of Wight.

“It’s also an opportunity for Islanders to come and talk to us about anything police and crime-related on the Island they wish to raise. We would love Islanders to share positive experiences with us as well.

“We hope the event will be informative and that people will find it useful.”

The meeting will be held on Friday 30 June at 6pm at Newport Congregational Church in Pyle Street.
