Commissioner Sue Mountstevens holds her second meeting with Avon and Somerset businesses later this month
POLICE and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens will be hosting her second business “meet and greet” on March 13.
She is encouraging business representatives to come along and discuss plans to establish a Business Crime Forum in the Avon and Somerset police force area.
The commissioner announced the initiative in her speech after winning the PCC election last November.
She aims, with the support of business leaders, to address business crime and help offenders.

The second of two initial meetings will see Ms Mountstevens introduce her vision and objectives and give business leaders the chance to share their thoughts and ideas.
Ms Mountstevens, who is a former director of Mountstevens bakeries, said: “In my experience, businesses have a real desire to engage with the police and I feel that a Business Crime Forum, which will be at a very strategic level covering the whole of Avon and Somerset, would be the platform for this.
“In having a Business Crime Forum, I want to engage with retailers and businesses because they are key to our economy and a really important voice which I do not think has been listened to before.”
The meeting will be from 6pm to 7pm at Leigh Court, Abbots Leigh.
