Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner Katy Bourne gave a talk to the Battle Probus Club.
John Hill, from the Club, said: “Katy explained that previously the general public had little contact with the police, or, the police with the general public. Her job is to bridge that gap.
“This does not mean telling the police what to do, but informing them of issues causing concern to residents, then making sure that they are resolved. Probus Club members agreed that Katy’s talk was comprehensive, compulsive and convincing.”
