RESIDENTS can have a say on any anti-social issues which are concerning them at a public event taking place next month.

The Safer Hartlepool Partnership is holding a ‘Face the Public’ event at Hartlepool College of Further Education, Stockton Street, on Thursday 16th October, from 5.30pm-7.30pm.

The partnership, is made up of a host of agencies including Hartlepool Borough Council, Cleveland Police and a range of other public and voluntary agencies.

It aims to build strong, cohesive and safe communities by reducing crime and anti-social behaviour, tackling the harm caused by substance misuse and reducing offending in the area.

Senior officials from all of the agencies involved with the group will be represented at the meeting, while Cleveland Police and Crime Commissioner Barry Coppinger will also be in attendance.

Councillor Christopher Akers-Belcher, Chair of the Safer Hartlepool Partnership, who will lead the meeting, said: “We are holding this very important event to give local residents an opportunity to have their say in setting priorities for tackling crime and improving community safety across Hartlepool over the next year.

“We really need to ensure that local voices continue to be heard and local priorities addressed in order to safeguard our communities.

“I hope that as many residents as possible will come along and take part in our ‘Face the Public’ event.”

Registration and tea and coffee will be available from 4.45pm and a full programme will be available upon arrival.

The event will close at 7.30pm. Car parking is available on site at the college free of charge.
