Greater Manchester no longer has a Police and Crime Commissioner. The Mayor of Greater Manchester has now taken responsibility for policing and crime.

Tameside’s turn to #TalkToTony

Tony Lloyd and Chief Constable Sir Peter Fahy at Trafford public meeting - #TalkToTony

Tameside residents get the chance to quiz their Police and Crime Commissioner and Chief Constable later this month.

The borough will host the next #TalkToTony event on Monday 30 September from 6.30pm, at Dukinfield Town Hall, where local people can put their questions on crime and policing to Tony Lloyd and Sir Peter Fahy.

This is one of a series of meetings that have been taking place across Greater Manchester throughout the year and have been attended by hundreds of people with many more following the events online.

Tony said: “I’ve been really inspired by the turnout at these meetings so far and I’m confident Tameside will be no exception.  I know how much local people care about their communities and want their voices to be heard and this meeting provides that opportunity. It’s your chance to help shape local policing and tell me and the Chief Constable what we’re doing right and what we’re doing wrong.”

“It’s my and the Chief Constable’s vision to build the safest communities in Britain and this can only be achieved by making sure we work together and it’s vital that communities are involved. That’s why meetings like this are so important so I know how you feel in your communities and work with police, councils and other agencies to tackle your issues and concerns.”

Meetings will be held monthly in each local authority area of Greater Manchester throughout 2013 so that every resident has the chance to meet Tony and Sir Peter and have a say in policing and crime issues.

If you can’t make it to the meeting you can follow online or on Twitter using the hashtag #talktotony, where you can also submit a question.
