Great opportunity

Epping Forest District Council Portfolio Holder for Safer, Greener, Transport, Councillor Sam Kane said: “These meetings are a great opportunity for residents across the district to find out more about the current situation in policing and fire services in our area and to ask any questions they may have about the two services.”

Joint approach

Mr Hirst said: “I hold regular public meetings across the length and breadth of the county. They are a great way to hear from local communities directly and we can help them resolve community safety issues. Very often a joint approach is the answer to a problem. With a panel of experts on hand, our public meetings are a great way to find the solutions together.”

The panel

Sitting alongside Roger Hirst will be Jane Gardner, the Deputy Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for Essex, and Chief Inspector Lewis Basford, Essex Police’s District Commander in Epping Forest. They will also be joined by representatives from Essex County Fire and Rescue Service and the local Community Safety Partnership.
