7:30pm Friday 2nd November 2012 in News
One of the candidates to become the first Police and Crime Commissioner for Devon and Cornwall will be speaking at a public meeting in Falmouth tomorrow.
Independent candidate William Morris will be at the Laburnum Hall at 10.30am, speaking on ‘Crime and Policing in Cornwall’.
He wants to hear from people living in Falmouth and the surrounding area, ahead of the election on November 15.
He will also explain his targets for policing in Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, which includes: antisocial behaviour and drug abuse, rural crime, rape and assault, child abuse, police on the beat and community payback.
Mr Morris said: “We have a police force to protect the public and maintain human dignity. We have a right to feel free from threats of robbery, violence, abuse and fear.
“Police are not here to fill forms and shuffle paperwork. They are here to keep our society free, our children safe, to protect life and property.”
