Police & Crime Plan - Have Your Say

Police and Crime Commissioner Donna Jones has today (June 10) opened a public consultation to develop her next Police and Crime Plan.

After being re-elected in May, the Commissioner is keen to begin gathering feedback from the public on how she can work with the Chief Constable over the next four years to deliver a best-in-class police force.  The Commissioner’s duty as an elected official is to listen to public concerns and set the local policing priorities on the public’s behalf.

Each priority in the new plan will be designed based on direct feedback from residents.

Police and Crime Commissioner Donna Jones said: “As your Commissioner, I represent you and your concerns. My role enables you to have a direct say on policing in your area and holding your police force to account.

Urgent Requirement for Sound Engineers

The New Milton Talking Newspaper is looking for volunteers to be sound technicians. The newspaper is recorded digitally and sent out to blind and partially sighted people in the New Forest area. We usually record on a Thursday evening or Friday morning and would be asking for volunteers to be available for recording once a month as part of a rota. We are looking for someone with experience as our current sound technicians have a limited amount of time to train people up.  Volunteers can phone 01425 616361 or email on :-
