I have received the following message from Steve Ragg at The County Durham Association of Local Councils (CDALC). In principle the views of all local residents are being sought. I have also forwarded it to all on the Hamsterley Residents Contact List.
From Steve Ragg, County Durham Association of Local Councils.
Dear All – The following is a message from Durham Police Authority.
Durham Police Authority is undertaking a public consultation on the future of local policing and is calling for local people to have their say on what the future should look like for policing in County Durham and Darlington.
Responding to the Government plans to introduce directly elected Police and Crime Commissioners by May 2012, the Police Authority is encouraging the people of County Durham and Darlington to put forward their views on these proposals which are set to cost tax payers in excess of an estimated £50Million in election and set-up costs alone.
The Police Authority wants to represent the public view in their response to the Home Office consultation ‘Policing in the 21st Century: Reconnecting Police and the People’.
