New-look public performance meeting will focus on CCTV and violence against women and girls

CCTV and violence against women and girls will be on the agenda as the Police and Commissioner for Surrey Lisa Townsend presents a new format of her Public Performance and Accountability meetings next week

As part of the Commissioner’s commitment to increasing engagement with Surrey residents, the new-look meeting will be streamed using Facebook Live from 10:30am on Monday (31 January).

You can watch the meeting live here.

The meeting is one of the key ways the Commissioner holds the Chief Constable Gavin Stephens to account on behalf of the public and she will be inviting feedback from residents on questions they would like answered on topics covered in future meetings.

The Chief Constable will give an update on the latest Public Performance Report which can be read here and will also face questions on key focus areas including the budgetary pressures facing the Surrey Police ahead of the start of a new financial year in April.

Commissioner Lisa Townsend said: “When I took office in May I promised to keep residents’ views at the heart of my plans for Surrey.

“Monitoring the performance of Surrey Police and holding the Chief Constable accountable is central to my role, and it is important to me that members of the public can get involved in that process to help my office and the Force to deliver the best possible service together.

“I especially encourage anyone with a question or topic they’d like to know more about to get in touch. We want to hear your views and will be dedicating a new space in every meeting to address the feedback we receive.”

Haven’t got time to watch the meeting on the day? The video of the meeting will be available afterwards on the Commissioner’s online channels including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Nextdoor, and on our Performance page.
