Press Release from Staffordshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner Matthew Ellis:-
'Staffordshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner Matthew Ellis says 2016 could be a defining year for policing and is keen to update community groups in Stafford as part of his ongoing engagement activities.
The Commissioner wants to visit local groups across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent to speak about the progress made so far and plans for the future to make sure the police respond appropriately to demand and victims are at the centre of the criminal justice system.
Construction has now started on state of the art fire station facilities at Burton, Rugeley, Chase Terrace, Leek, Loggerheads, Penkridge, Lichfield, Kinver, Codsall, Stone and Longton.
All stations are due to be completed in 2016. This supplements the first phase which provided new Community Fire Stations at Rising Brook, Sandyford, Tamworth, Uttoxeter, Cannock, Hanley, Burslem, Newcastle and Kidsgrove. Alongside these, community facilities at Cheadle, Wombourne, Longnor, Biddulph and Gnosall were fully refurbished.
Great ideas for community safety solutions come from local people – which is why Police and Crime Commissioner Matthew Ellis is inviting groups in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent to bid for money from the Commissioner’s People Power Fund.
