Chance to Quiz Cleveland’s Top Cop

Members of the public will have their chance to quiz Cleveland Police’s Chief Constable, Jacqui Cheer, in a live web chat next week.

The online chat runs from 6pm to 8pm, and members of the public can put questions to the Chief during the event.

It is part of the Community Click initiative, which allows people to ask questions about a wide range of topics in relation to policing.

The initiative was designed to compliment neighbourhood meetings, so people who may not be able to attend public meetings or who may not have the confidence to ask questions in a public environment can quiz officers from the comfort of their own home.

Chief Constable of Cleveland Police Jacqui Cheer said: “It has been a while since my last Community Click, so I am looking forward to taking part in Monday’s online chat.

“The internet and social media have revolutionised the way in which we communicate over the last few years, and it’s important that we explore new ways of engaging with our communities.

“The Force has various Facebook and Twitter sites, and these are really effective for getting messages out quickly.

“But we understand that not everyone will have internet access, which is why the online sessions are designed to compliment neighbourhood meetings and not replace them.”

People can put their questions to the Chief Constable by visiting the Force website at www.cleveland.police.uk, and clicking onto the Community Click initiative on the front page.

The web chat takes place from 6pm to 8pm on Monday 18th February, 2013.
