Acknowledging government and public concern about the need to engage local communities in the forthcoming elections for Police and Crime Commissioners, CMI East Midlands, in partnership with Neighbourhood Watch and the Rutland Voluntary Sector Consortium, is sponsoring two public hustings for candidates seeking to be elected as Police and Crime Commissioner for Leicestershire and Rutland.
CMI colleagues and members of the public are invited to attend either of the following events and, following a series of short presentations, put questions to candidates prior to deciding who to vote for in the November 15th elections. Both events will commence at 7pm and close at 9pm. Refreshments will be provided upon arrival.
To ensure independence, each hustings will be chaired by a local newspaper Editor. Local Radio and other media organisations have been invited to record event proceedings.
