Have your say

There is less than a week left to submit questions for Norfolk Police and Crime Panel’s Public Question Time, which will see the panel’s chairman put on the spot this December.

Tuesday, December 16, will see the panel meet for Public Question Time, when the panel’s chairman will answer questions that have been submitted to Norfolk County Council, by 5pm on December 1.

The Panel agreed a procedure for public questions at their October 2014 meeting, to enable people to ask questions of the Panel’s chairman on issues covered by the Panel at their meetings.

It is not a platform for the public to put questions to the Police and Crime Commissioner for Norfolk or the Chief Constable, both of whom have separate arrangements for answering queries.

Questions to the Panel can be submitted by anyone who lives, works or studies in Norfolk and must adhere to the criteria set out in the guidance note which can be found on the Panel’s webpage: www.norfolk.gov.uk/policeandcrimepanel

Each submitted question must be limited to a maximum of 100 words and one question per Panel meeting and must relate to the Panel’s roles and responsibilities.

Further questions can be asked in person if the questioner, or a representative, attends the meeting and the subject matter is the same as the original question.

Questions can be submitted by emailing committees@norfolk.gov.uk or by writing to the council’s Head of Democratic Services.
