Are the police visible in your neighbourhood? Are there enough patrols on your local seafront?

If you have reported a crime, how quickly did the police respond?

Does the force represent good value for money? Did you vote in the election for the Sussex police and crime commissioner? And will the Sussex force ever be merged with another?

Would you like an opportunity to question the police and crime commissioner, Katy Bourne, in public, along with Sussex Chief Constable Giles York and divisional commander, Chief Superintendent Neil Honnor? Well here’s your opportunity. The Observer is working with the crime commissioner’s office to give its readers across East Sussex an opportunity to question those responsible for policing our towns and streets.

You can join the “Police and Crime Community Conversation” at a special event in Eastbourne to be chaired by Hastings Observer editor-in-chief Keith Ridley in the Gold Room at the Winter Garden on December 9.

Also joining the panel will be Christina Ewbank, chief executive of Eastbourne Chamber of Commerce. The debate is one of a series to be held across Sussex to enable people to meet their police chiefs and debate the policing, crime anti-social behaviour and community issues that affect them. It’s your chance to have your say. Please send your questions to us for the attention of: inge.keats@jpress.co.uk or write to Community Crime Conversation, Eastbourne Herald, 26 Gildredge Road, Eastbourne BN21 4SA.

Doors open at 6pm at the Winter Garden on December 9.
