Katy Bourne speaks at Adur and Worthing Joint Overview and Scrutiny Committee

Sussex Police & Crime Commissioner (PCC), Katy Bourne, is visiting Adur & Worthing Councils to talk about her work in the community and take questions from local councillors.

Mrs Bourne, who has been in post now since November 2012, will address the Adur and Worthing Joint Overview and Scrutiny Committee (JOSC) on Thursday 22 January at 6.30pm in the Gordon Room at Worthing Town Hall.

Members of the public are able to ask a question about any council service at the start of the meeting and are also welcome to hear the Police and Crime Commissioner talk.

Joint Chairman for the meeting and Worthing Councillor, Roy Barraclough, says: “We are delighted that the PCC has made the time to come along to talk with us about her work.”

Commenting ahead of the meeting Mrs Bourne said: “I am looking forward to joining the local district commander and addressing the questions raised by councillors and residents’ about policing and crime in their area.”

JOSC, which meets about four times year, is the watchdog for both Adur District Council and Worthing Borough Council. It makes sure that matters of public interest are scrutinised to give greater transparency and is made up from councillors from both councils.
