POLICE Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens said she was ‘deeply motivated’ by the level of interest from Weston people to get involved with policing.
More than 80 people attended a public forum hosted by Ms Mountstevens, Chief Constable Nick Gargan and local area commander Chief Superintendent Nikki Watson at the Town Hall on Tuesday.
The meeting included a presentation about local policing and a question and answer session.
Local crime hotspots, the badger cull, cybercrime and ways of interacting with young people were all topics raised by residents.
Ms Mountstevens said: “Thank you to everyone that took time out of their evening to attend the forum.
