Wiltshire Police – Live online chat 23rd Jan 2012

Wiltshire Police and Wiltshire Police Authority (WPA) are holding a live public online chat on Monday 23 January 2012.

Deputy Chief Constable Patrick Geenty, Assistant Chief Constable Mike Veale and WPA Chairman Chris Hoare will be online from 7pm – 8pm to answer questions from members of the public.

The live session will provide you with an opportunity to submit questions directly to Wiltshire Police Chief Officers and the WPA on any subject you may wish to raise.

It is also a chance for you to have your say on what the Force should be doing in the coming year so that it can consider this when setting Force priorities.

Submitting a question is simple. Visit www.wiltshire.police.uk on the evening and follow the instructions.

Deputy Chief Constable Patrick Geenty said:

“Keeping our neighbourhoods safe remains a top priority for Wiltshire Police. It is important that we engage with our local communities to ensure we are providing them with the right service.
This online chat facility provides members of the public with an opportunity to talk to us directly and let us know what they want from their local police service. I would encourage everyone in Wiltshire to log on and let us know their views and I look forward to talking to individuals from local communities about our Force priorities.”

WPA Chairman Chris Hoare said:

“Following the success of previous online chats, we want to continue to engage with residents by providing them with opportunities to talk to us directly.
Our priorities are to ensure that Wiltshire Police continues to deliver a good service, to keep our streets safe and that Wiltshire remains one of the safest counties in the country. It is important that the public have a chance to have their say on what they see as their priorities for the police.”

As this is a live online chat, Chief Officers and the WPA Chairman will endeavour to answer as many questions as possible during the live hour. Any questions not answered will be responded to via the Force website by midday on Wednesday 25 January 2012.

All questions and answers will be kept on the Wiltshire Police website for members of the public to view for at least three months.

Please note the online session must not be used to report a crime or query the progress with an existing crime. All questions will be monitored and will only be posted once they have been approved.
