PEOPLE in Devon and Cornwall are being given their last chance to table questions to justice leaders ahead of a "Question Time" style debate taking place in Plymouth next week.
The free event, being held next Wednesday (October 21) as part of this year's Inside Justice Week 09, will be chaired by BBC news presenter, Philip Hayton.
It is designed to give the local community direct access to people who work in the criminal justice system, so they can get a greater insight into the way the system works, why and also why certain decisions may have been made on local criminal issues.
The Question Time panel will be made up of a mixture of members of the justice community, including chief crown prosecutor, Tracy Easton; Assistant Chief Constable Paul Netherton; governor HMP Exeter Mark Flinton; Elliot Perkins, from the Rural Racism Project; and leading members of the media including Alan Qualtrough, editor in chief of the Western Morning News.

Tracy Easton, who is also Chair of the Local Criminal Justice Board, organiser of the event, said: "We are delighted to be holding this unique and interesting event for the first time in Devon and Cornwall.
"The aim of Inside Justice Week is to engage with the community and give them an insight into what the system does and is trying to achieve on their behalf. It is their justice system after all.
"I hope we have some challenging and thought provoking debates."
