'I am staging a series of public meetings across the county in the autumn which I would like to make you aware of, if not already.
There will be a meeting in each of the seven district or borough areas. Each meeting will involve a quick overview from me and Douglas Paxton, the Chief Constable. The public will have an opportunity to ask questions directly to either, or both of us and we will have a senior police officer, responsible for policing in the local area, to support us for operational context. We’ll also be asking the audience to have their say with the help of an interactive voting system.
I do hope you will be able to attend and would be grateful if you could extend this invite to anyone that you feel may be interested. There is no need to book – everyone is welcome.
Thank you for your support.'
Ipswich meeting is at University Campus 6.30pm on Tuesday 22nd October 2013
