Lancashire votes for its first Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC).

The PCC will replace Lancashire Police Authority (LPA) following the election on November 15.

LPA Chief Executive, Miranda Carruthers-Watt, said: “Lancashire Police Authority has been raising awareness of this election for many months. We are continuing to work hard to ensure everyone in the County understands the change and votes next month. I would urge everyone to make sure they are registered to vote and to get involved in this election. This is an important change for Lancashire and the PCC will be the voice of residents when it comes to policing and crime”.

The Federation of Small Buisnesses in Preston is organising a meeting for its members in the city. The meeting represents an opportunity for FSB members to attend and give their views on what the priorities should be for the Lancashire Constabulary.

Chaired by FSB Regional Secretary Craig Morgan, the meeting will see each candidate given a short time to state their priorities and views before we open the debate to members.

If you or your business have been a victim of crime this event presents a great opportunity to have your voice heard.

A free event, but places are strictly limited.

Tuesday, October 30, 2012 from 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM (GMT)Dickson Haslam Solicitors 12 Chapel St

LPA has produced a song and video, performed by the Lancashire Hotpots, to raise awareness about the election in the County which can be found here:
