Inspector Dan Russell of Sussex Police has promised to attend and speak at the Brightling Annual Assembly, which will be on Monday 9th April 2018, starting at 7:30 pm in the Village Hall.
Sussex Police have recently announced their “new policing model” – a fundamental re-structuring of their organization to accommodate the changing nature of crime with reduced resources. I don’t think I will attempt to summarize the new policing model, but rather refer you to Sussex Police’s own explanation at www.sussex.police.uk/about-us/priorities-and-direction/local-policing-model/.
It is not always easy to grasp the impact of such a restructuring by just reading about it, so the visit by Insp. Russell is an excellent opportunity to ask questions or put points directly to him.
