Police and Crime Commissioner Michael Lane will ask Chief Constable Olivia Pinkney your questions.

Hampshire Police and Crime Commissioner, Michael Lane, is inviting local residents to email him any questions they might have on how the coronavirus outbreak is impacting on policing and about the plans that are in place to keep the community safe.

Later this week Commissioner Lane will be putting residents’ questions to the Chief Constable Olivia Pinkney as part of his regular COMPASS (Commissioner’s Performance, Accountability, Scrutiny and Strategy) meetings.

The meeting and the questions – with the Chief Constable’s answers  – will be filmed and made available for viewing by the public via facebook and the Commissioner’s own website www.hampshire-pcc.gov.uk shortly afterward.

If residents have any areas of concern on Covid-19 and policing that they would like the Commissioner to raise with the Chief Constable they should send the query in an email to opcc@hampshire.pnn.police.uk or else ring 01962 871595 by 12 noon on Tuesday 24 March 2020.

Michael Lane said:

“At this time when people face so much uncertainty and have significant concerns about Covid-19 I will focus my usual scrutiny session on performance with the Chief Constable on this matter. It is important for you to have the answers to any questions you may have to help reduce any of your concerns on how it is affecting the delivery of policing and to reassure you that police resources are being used as effectively and efficiently as possible during this challenging time to keep you all safer.”

Coronavirus has already resulted in the postponement of this year’s Police and Crime Commissioner elections which means Commissioner Lane will stay in post until next year
