Tune in to PCC’s Online Scrutiny Session
06 September 2021
Tune in to Facebook Live on Wednesday 8 September at 6pm for the Police and Crime Commissioner’s first public scrutiny session, ‘COPS’ (Commissioner’s oversight of policing services), with the Chief Constable.
For the first time, Police and Crime Commissioner, Donna Jones, will be hosting the question and answer session as a Facebook Live event, so that any members of the public can post questions live, while they are watching, for the Commissioner to put to the Chief Constable.
The Live session can be viewed on both the Police and Crime Commissioner’s own Facebook page and Hampshire Constabulary’s. The session will also be recorded and shared through the Commissioner’s website after the event.
Commissioner Jones said, “I am determined to make sure residents have the opportunity to share their concerns about policing and to have their questions answered by the Chief Constable, which is why I am holding my scrutiny session online so as many people as possible can watch live and submit a question.”
“Local people have told me they don’t feel as safe as they used to and as the new Police and Crime Commissioner I want to know why that is and to challenge the Chief Constable to deliver policing that meets local residents needs and makes them safer.”
The Commissioner previously asked members of the public that cannot attend on the day or do not have access to social media to submit their questions in advance so their questions can still be put to the Chief Constable.
