NEW Police Contact - reporting rural crime Clare Sampson 2017-03-28 20:45:49

The Force recently launched a dedicated text line for incoming non-urgent information relating to rural crime which has proved very successful. The project is to continue but with a brand new and long-term number 07492 888109 (if you have previously saved 81819 please now delete and replace with this new number).

This is NOT a number to use to report crime or to call for police assistance and it will not be monitored 24/7.

The number can be used to report information of people/vehicles seen behaving suspiciously in the rural community, potentially stolen goods etc.

Alternatively You can report a crime online via our website http://www.avonandsomerset.police.uk or if it's a crime which requires immediate police attendance then dial 999.

You can still also pass on information anonymously via the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Scrutiny of Police Panel Clare Sampson 2017-03-19 09:00:37

The Avon and Somerset Police & Crime Commissioner (PCC), Sue Mountstevens, wishes to establish a Scrutiny of Police Powers Panel. The Panel will act as ‘critical friend’ to the PCC and to Avon & Somerset Constabulary providing feedback on the use of police powers. The PCC is looking for independent local people to help her monitor the use of police powers such as stop and search, Taser and use of force by the police. The PCC feels it is important that not only are the public’s views represented in policing, but that local people trust and have confidence in their police service and she believes this new Panel will help in delivering this.

• The PCC website has further information about the role and application pack documents - see link below;

• Closing date for applications is 12 April 2017;

To download an application pack please visit http://www.avonandsomerset-pcc.gov.uk/Openness/Scrutiny/Scrutiny-of-the-use-of-Police-Powers.aspx or contact the Office of the Police & Crime Commissioner on 01275 816377.
