Suffolk control room debate – have your say…

new tim A public meeting of the Police and Crime Commissioners for Suffolk and Norfolk was held at Suffolk Constabulary Headquarters on Thursday 27 February.

The main item for discussion was a proposal by the two Chief Constables for a collaborated Control Room and a Shared Services Partnership for Norfolk and Suffolk.

Following the meeting Suffolk’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Tim Passmore said, “It is really important that I, as the elected representative of the people of Suffolk, fight to protect front line policing in the county and I believe that the control room is a very integral element of our front line policing.

“No decision has been made yet, but I can assure you that I will carefully consider the Chief Constable’s proposals and the business cases and will make my decision based on what is best for the people of Suffolk.

“I would encourage everyone to have their say.”

He added, “If you have a view on the proposals please take part in our survey.”
