Holyhead residents urged to book place at PCC and NWP public surgery

Date

North Wales Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) Andy Dunbobbin and North Wales Police are holding an advice surgery at the town’s library in Market Hall on Stanley Street for residents of Holyhead and surrounding areas from 2-4pm on July 10 as part of the PCC’s mission to bring policing closer to the people of the region. The initiative will enable local people to discuss policing in their communities and to raise any concerns or comments they might have with the Commissioner and representatives from North Wales Police.

Prior to his recent re-election as PCC, Andy Dunbobbin reaffirmed his commitment to being a visible and responsible Commissioner for the region and to be available and approachable for residents. With this in mind, the Commissioner and officers will be happy to talk through matters affecting residents in their own local community.

Attendees will have 20 minutes to speak personally with the Commissioner, who will be accompanied by representatives from his office and North Wales Police, to provide the maximum possible assistance to the public. The conversations will remain confidential, and the Commissioner, officers and staff will be able to provide further signposting if an issue can be more appropriately dealt with by other agencies and organisations.

Andy Dunbobbin, Police and Crime Commissioner for North Wales commented: "My upcoming surgery in Holyhead marks another opportunity to further strengthen the already deep bond between myself and the communities we serve across North Wales. Having recently secured re-election, I remain dedicated to fostering a closer relationship between the public, my office and North Wales Police.

“In the past, the residents of Holyhead have shared invaluable insights into local issues with me, and I am eager to continue building this open dialogue. I encourage all members of the community to take this chance to voice their concerns and ideas directly.”

The Police and Crime Commissioner has four main duties, they are to set the priorities for policing in North Wales; to decide the budget for North Wales Police; to listen and respond to the public’s views on policing; and to hold the Chief Constable to account.

How it works

The PCC will be accompanied in Holyhead by staff from his team and North Wales Police who will help to facilitate the meetings and take notes if needed.

Surgeries are by appointment only to ensure that the issues being raised relate to policing, crime or community safety, and to ensure the PCC is fully briefed on the issue prior to the meeting.

While the Commissioner is unable to intervene directly in operational matters, he welcomes residents’ feedback on how North Wales is policed.

The PCC will not be able to consider complaints about police officers, members of police staff, police community support officers or special constables as this has to go through the existing and established channels. Further advice on the complaints system is on the OPCC website here.
