100 Conversations (virtual event)
6th July 2020 - 4th December 2020
It’s imperative that I, as the Police and Crime Commissioner, am able to demonstrate my genuine desire to listen to the local Bedfordshire communities.
Therefore, I would like to invite members of the community, in particular those from the Afro Caribbean community, for a one to one conversation with myself regarding their experience with and thoughts on discrimination and the Black Lives Matter movement.
As the voice of younger people is often unheard, I would also like to learn of their own experiences of Bedfordshire Police, more widely within the Criminal Justice system, in health, education, housing and other services, although capturing their personal experiences of policing is my priority.
Hearing your views is a priority for me moving forward across this year and I will compile a report of anonymous or named interview content (subject to your agreement) to submit to the Force and other service and policy leaders at the end of the year.
My belief is, one to one conversations are more constructive and will give you a chance to speak openly and express yourself fully. Therefore, I will not be participating in group conversations. The conversations will last for no longer than one hour and will be held via Skype or Microsoft Teams. The reason these conversations cannot be held in person is due to the fact I am currently working remotely and shielding at home due to a long-standing health condition of my husband.
You can book in a conversation with myself from 9am – 5pm between 6th July 2020 and 4th December 2020, subject to the available time slots.
