Crime Commissioner Bob Jones invites residents to chat via Skype
12:00pm Tuesday 6th August 2013 in News
BOROUGH residents can chat with West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner Bob Jones via Skype on Friday (August 9).
Skype allows users to communicate online and see each other via webcam and Mr Jones will be available between 3pm and 4pm to discuss issues of community safety, crime and policing.
He said: "I'm a firm believer in being as open, transparent and accessible as possible. Social networking and electronic communications will never replace meeting people in person, which is why I hold face-to-face surgeries across the West Midlands.
“However, these channels aren't convenient for everyone and new technologies like Twitter, web chats and Skype enable more people to be involved."
A broadband internet connection, a device with a webcam (tablet, PC or laptop) and Skype account are required to take part.
Anyone who wants to book a Skype call with Mr Jones should call 0121 626 6060.
