The Policing Board in partnership with Derry Policing and Community Safety Partnership (PCSP) is holding a public meeting in St Columb’s Park House, Derry, tonight Wednesday, November 5, from 7-9pm.

The meeting, which is open to everyone, will focus on Policing with the Community and people will have the opportunity to put questions to Board Members, the Chief Constable and Derry PCSP members on policing issues in the area.

Speaking about the meeting, Board Chair Anne Connolly said: “We are looking forward to meeting with the community in Derry to discuss policing issues. It is important that we give all communities the opportunity to come along and have their say on how their community is policed and provide the opportunity for questions to be put to those who make the key decisions around policing.

The meeting will have particular focus on policing with the community and we will also hear from some local young people who are involved in leadership initiative which is being supported by the Board, the PSNI and the US Consulate.”

The Policing Board will also be holding its monthly meeting in public in the Waterside Theatre Derr from 11am – 12.15pm on Thursday, November 6. This will give people the chance to watch the Board question the Chief Constable on policing issues. Questions from the public are not permitted in this session.
