Matthew Ellis, Staffordshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner, will be hearing about the issues that matter to people in Burton on Trent this week.

He will hold two supermarket surgeries in the town before answering questions at a public meeting at Burton Town Hall during the ‘Let’s Talk’ engagement day on Thursday, 4 September.

matthewellisThe events are the latest opportunity for people to tell Mr Ellis first-hand about crime and local policing and their experience of the criminal justice system. People are invited to come along to discuss any concerns they have about crime, policing and community safety – no appointment is needed.

The Commissioner will be at Asda in the Octagon Centre, Orchard Street, DE14 3TN, between 12.15pm and 1pm, at Tesco in St Peters Bridge, DE14 3RJ, between 1.15pm and 2pm. The public meeting will take place at the town hall in King Edward Place, DE14 2EB, between 6pm and 7pm.

Mr Ellis said: “This is a great opportunity to find out what people in Burton and the surrounding areas have to say. I want to hear what people’s experiences are of policing and the criminal justice system.

“How could things be done better to make sure the system fits the needs of people rather than people having to fit the system?

“These events give local people a chance to shape the future of policing and the criminal justice services for us all.”
