As set out in the Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act 2011, the Police and Crime Commissioner, Darryl Preston, must produce a Police and Crime Plan.
The Commissioner has today launched a month-long consultation with the public about what should be included within the Plan, but he is also keen to hear from organisations and community groups who may have a role to play in keeping our communities safe and tackling crime. The Commissioner is keen to ensure the Plan reflects any shared outcomes we may have. Below is a link to a stakeholder survey for community and voluntary groups can fill out, which will feed into the development of the Plan.
The Plan must set out how the Commissioner will ensure victims get the help they need, how he will support and challenge the Chief Constable in their approach to policing, how he will commission services and award grants, and how policing will be delivered within an ethical framework.
While the Plan has to meet a number of statutory responsibilities, the Commissioner wants it to be a meaningful document that helps us all to take action and see results. Having listened to communities, victims, and stakeholders, the Plan will be centred around tackling crime and keeping communities safe.
The Police and Crime Commissioner is asking individuals to complete the public survey by the 30th July 2021
