Lynn Owens Surrey’s new Chief Constable will speak to Labour Party representatives from all over Surrey about important changes about to take place in the policing of Surrey.
“One issue I would like to explore with her is the comment by The Chief Constable of Greater Manchester that the issue of mental health threatens to overwhelm the police in his area,” County Councillor Victor Agarwal (Stanwell) states; “Labour feels that under the NHS Bill too little recognition is given to the strain on both the police and community services to the growing problem of mental illness in Surrey.”
Victor is a member of Surrey’s Adult Social Care Committee.
As well as this issue Labour will raise questions of changes in accountability that will follow the appointment of Police Commissioners later this year. Other issues such as flexible employment, value for money and job cuts within the force here will also be raised. How will the move towards results rather than officer numbers actually work?
What exactly is Mrs Owen’s reform agenda?
The Meeting will be at Owen House, Heathside Road, Woking, starting at 3pm.Other news from Surrey Labour
