Spelthorne residents are invited to the Borough’s Crime Summit, which takes place between 7-9pm on Thursday 4 September at the Council Offices in Staines-upon-Thames.
This is the second round of Crime Summits for the Police and Crime Commissioner, following a series of successful events over the last year. Those Summits, held in every Borough and District in the county, saw nearly 1000 people getting involved in discussions over policing and community safety where they live.
In Spelthorne this year, the PCC will be joined once again by the senior leadership of the Borough Council and the Police Neighbourhood Inspector to discuss the work that has been done in the Borough over the last twelve months. The public will have the opportunity to have their say on local community safety issues, including:
– Tackling crime and antisocial behaviour
– Police budgets and the Force’s share of council tax
– Working together to increase the public’s sense of safety
The Summit will be two hours in length and refreshments will be provided from 6:30pm.

Kevin Hurley said:
“The police, councils and politicians can only make things better if people tell us what is troubling them and work with us to help deal with it. We are here to listen and to take action.
“I also want to have a discussion with people about the police budget. Cuts continue to bite and I am now beginning my considerations about next year’s budget and our share of council tax. It is vital that I hear from the public on this and make my decisions on the budget with their needs in mind.
“I am looking forward to this opportunity to meet Spelthorne residents, tell them about the work going on to make their Borough an even safer place to live and work and hear about where else we can make a difference. I encourage the people of Spelthorne to take this opportunity to get involved and get their voices heard.”
