The impact of the new police operating model, including the proposed changes to police stations in the Bath and North East Somerset area, will be discussed.

The Chair of the Panel, Cllr Robin Moss, said: “A key element of the panel’s work is working with the police to make our communities safer, and we will welcome Chief Superintendent Peters as part of that discussion.”

The meeting will be held in a ‘Question Time’ format, with the public able to submit questions about the police operating model in advance, or at the meeting itself. Please send questions to the Democratic Services Officer no later than 3pm Thursday January 15, 2014.
