The Police and Crime Commissioner for Suffolk, Tim Passmore held a Q&A session at the co-joined Police and Fire Station on Theatre Street in Woodbridge this week in a bid to build the bridge between the public and the authorities.

Members of the public were invited to go along to the informal session to ask questions, seek advice and voice any concerns they may have. Woodbridge was just one of many stops along the way and Mr Passmore aims to reach the people on the street in getting first-hand information of what the emergency services can do to make their community a better and safer place.

As he explained: "These public engagement sessions really do make a difference. It is only by hearing what people think that I can represent their views, I hope people will take the opportunity to drop in - I will be very happy to discuss anything that concerns them."
