STAFFORDSHIRE police and crime commissioner Matthew Ellis will be making an appearance in Burton tomorrow to hear about the issues that matter to residents.

Mr Ellis will be holding two 'supermarket surgeries' in the town before answering questions at a public meeting at Burton Town Hall during the Let's Talk engagement day.

The events have been organised for people to tell Mr Ellis first-hand about crime and local policing and their experience of the criminal justice system.

People are invited to attend for free to discuss any concerns they have about crime, policing and community safety.

The commissioner will be at Asda, in Union Street, between 12.15pm and 1pm.

He will also be at Tesco, off St Peter's Bridge, between 1.15pm and 2pm.

The public meeting will take place at the town hall between 6pm and 7pm.

Mr Ellis (pictured) said: "This is a great opportunity to find out what people in Burton and the surrounding areas have to say. I want to hear what people's experiences are of policing and the criminal justice system.

"How could things be done better to make sure the system fits the needs of people rather than people having to fit the system?

"These events give local people a chance to shape the future of policing and the criminal justice services for us all."
