Community Conversation comes to town


Registration has now opened for Brighton & Hove residents to have their say at the first Community Conversation event with Sussex Police & Crime Commissioner, Katy Bourne, Chief Constable, Giles York and Brighton & Hove Divisional Commander, Chief Superintendent Nev Kemp.

The debate, chaired by The Argus editor, Michael Beard will be held at Hove Town Hall on Monday 6 October.

Commenting ahead of the Brighton & Hove event, Mrs Bourne said: “I’m really looking forward to the first of our Police and Crime Community Conversations and formally introducing Giles York as the new Chief Constable of Sussex.

“These events will set the context for policing in Sussex and, most importantly, provide an opportunity for residents to pose questions about topical issues directly to me, the Chief Constable and Divisional Commander.

“I’m particularly delighted that we are bringing this conversation to Hove Town Hall with the Argus and I’m sure it will prove to be a lively debate.”

Sussex Police Chief Constable, Giles York said: “It will be another great opportunity for me to meet the public in Sussex with the Police and Crime Commissioner and Chief Supt Nev Kemp. I want to hear the views of the residents of Brighton and Hove about the policing issues which are important to them.”

Chief Superintendent Nev Kemp said: “As Brighton & Hove Divisional Commander it is important that I hear from the local community on the issues that are affecting them. This event will be the perfect platform for local residents to have their say.”

The panel will answer pre-submitted and audience questions on topics likely to include domestic abuse, burglary, sexual offences, anti-social behaviour, protests, and public satisfaction in the police.

Doors open at 6pm and the event will finish at 7.45pm. Hove Town Hall is on Norton Road.
