Dorset PCC to visit Townsend Tomorrow
Martyn Underhill, Dorset Police and Crime Commissioner will be meeting people from North Bournemouth at a community day, to be held on Thursday 19th February on the Townsend estate.
The day for Martyn will start with a visit to Winton Police station to meet the Inspector and officers before joining staff at the Townsend Community Centre.
As well as him having an engagement stand, there will be other agencies from across Bournemouth whose services range from crime prevention advice to help for individuals who have been the victim of crime.
Come and meet the agencies that help support the work of Dorset Police in keeping Dorset safe and meet the Police and Crime Commissioner who is keen to know what issues people have with crime and policing in Dorset.
During the day he will also meet staff at the nearby Jewell Academy who, despite it being half term will give him a tour of the building and explain how they are working with the community to improve life on the estate. Then he will go onto meet young people at the Townsend youth club.
“The purpose of my community days, are for me to get a feel for what matters to people in terms of crime and policing, so that I can be sure that any proposed changes in the future best meet the needs of the residents and businesses in Dorset.”
The event starts at the Townsend Community Centre at 10am and will close at 3pm. The Police and Crime Commissioner will be on hand at various times throughout the day.
We will be joined on the day by Victim Support, Bournemouth ASB team, Townsend Safer Neighbourhood Team, Crimestoppers, the Children’s Centre, Dorset Rape Crisis, North Bournemouth Crime Prevention Panel, the NHS ‘My Health, My Way’ team and more.
