Meet Your Commissioner online

People living in the EREWASH area are being invited to meet Derbyshire Police and Crime Commissioner Hardyal Dhindsa in a special virtual event to discuss crime and policing.

The Commissioner will shine a spotlight on the work he is undertaking to improve safety for local people and highlight some of the key achievements over the past 12 months.

The virtual event, which is free, will take place on Wednesday 3rd March 2021 between 6pm and 7.30pm and will enable residents to raise any concerns about crime or policing in their district as well as learn about how partners are working together to increase police visibility and support victims of crime.

Attendees will also hear updates on the Commissioner's forthcoming budget and the recently-launched Operation Derbyshire, which aims to highlight the good work going on to address top priorities for the public including speeding, antisocial behaviour and rural, wildlife and heritage crime.

Mr Dhindsa said: "Some of the most exciting improvements I've made since being elected as PCC have been instigated by our communities and I cannot stress how valuable my engagement events are for unearthing and solving local issues.

"Over the last few years, we've really listened to what people have told us and have responded positively to issues that impact on quality of life and public confidence. I'm determined to keep the conversation going which is why I've launched a series of virtual events across the county to safely exchange views and present some of the good work already happening to improve lives."

Virtual events have been scheduled to take place across Derbyshire over the next few weeks. All of the meetings will run from 6pm until 7.30pm and tickets will be available via Eventbrite.

Elections

Erewash voters will go to the polls on Thursday 6 May to vote in the elections for Derbyshire County Council and the Police and Crime Commissioner for Derbyshire. More »

The government has confirmed that the elections will go ahead with safety measures in place.

The easiest and safest way for people to cast their vote is to have a postal vote, with new applications needing to be made by the deadline of 5pm on Tuesday 20 April – and the clear message is that your vote matters so apply now!

Erewash Borough Council recently sent letters to all households to confirm that the information it has on the Register of Electors is correct. The letter also contained a postal vote application form.

But anyone who still wants to apply should email electreg@erewash.gov.uk or call 0115 907 1190.

Polling Stations will be open as usual and will be safe places to vote. Voters will need to wear face masks and must take their own pen or pencil and can expect many other safety measures to be in place – including hand sanitisers and floor markings. There will also be parish council elections in some areas.

Councillor Carol Hart, Leader of Erewash Borough Council, says:

"Elections remain a vital part of our democratic process and it is important that everyone has their right to vote. The last year has been so challenging, but it is right that we go ahead with these May elections and that they take place in the safest way possible.

"However you choose to cast your vote, you can do it safely – but please do make sure you have your say and vote."

Only people registered will be sent a poll card to allow them to vote, you can register online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote (opens in a new window) by Monday 19 April.

Postal and proxy applications must be made via email or call 0115 907 1190. If you are already a postal voter then you do not need to reapply. » Less
