Sussex residents now have the chance to pose questions to the Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) in person at a meeting next month.
Questions are now being invited for Katy Bourne ahead of the next meeting of the Sussex Police and Crime Panel on Friday 5 October.
Having submitted questions in advance, residents can, if they wish, then attend the meeting to ask their question in person, hear the answer and then raise further points. Otherwise the Chairman will ask their question on their behalf.
This new approach was agreed by the panel at its last meeting.
Questions could be about any policy issue relating to policing in Sussex (but not related to operational matters, or a live case).
The deadline for receiving questions is midday on Friday 21 September and they can be submitted in writing to email@example.com or by telephoning 03302 222542.
The meeting will be held at County Hall, Lewes, starting at 10.30am. The meeting will also be webcast live at www.eastsussex.public-i.tv/core/portal/home.
