Victoria Ayling UKIP’s candidate for the Police and Crime Commissioner role in Lincolnshire wants to hear your views at a public meeting in Sleaford.
Determined to listen to the views and concerns of the residents Victoria Ayling is holding a series of public meetings in Lincolnshire.
She aims to have a special guest on the panel at each meeting so that questions and concerns will not just be taken on board by herself but they will be getting back to influential people too.
There will be a meeting at the Solo Bar in Sleaford Market Place on Tuesday March 29 at 7pm
Mrs Ayling said: “I want to listen to the residents and to answer any questions they may have about Policing and Crime in Lincolnshire. The funding we have from the Government is unfair and dangerously low and I am determined to fight for a better deal. We have been promised this, but it has been kicked into the long grass despite having a Conservative County Council and MPs.
“To ensure good visible policing the promised new formula needs implementing urgently. Whilst volunteers have their role, they cannot be a substitute for officers and PCSOs as that is unsustainable and unreliable. People want to feel safe and be safe, and policing on the cheap is not going to work properly.”
Colin Mair UKIP Lincolnshire County Council Group Leader will also be present. Whilst police and crime is the main theme of the evening, residents are welcome to discuss any issue which concerns them.
Mr Mair said: “I see at first hand the views and opinions of people in the community and these people are the eyes and ears without which effective and preventative policing would just not happen. We as a community need to continue to be proactive to create effective law and order.”
