If you have yet to have your say on the policing priorities, which will help shape the next Police and Crime Plan, there are less than two weeks left to do so and Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) Sue Mountstevens wants to hear from you.
You can share your comments by taking part in the online survey, completing a hardcopy and sending it to the Office of the PCC, face-to-face at local events or over the phone, before the survey closes on Tuesday, August 30, 2016.
There’s still time for you to tell the PCC what you think the police should be focusing on and to join the 1,600 local residents of Avon and Somerset who have already taken part in the consultation.
PCC Sue Mountstevens said: “Thank you to everyone who has already taken part in the survey. We’ve been delighted with the response so far, it’s also great to see the passion of local people in keeping their communities safe and to hear what they consider a priority for their police service.
“I want to hear from as many voices as possible including residents, community groups, young people and particularly victims of crime. We’re collating and analysing all the responses and ensuring your views are reflected in the Police and Crime Plan so that it is truly our Plan.”
To take part in the consultation visit www.avonandsomerset-pcc.gov.uk. You can also email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01275 816377 for hardcopy surveys.
All Police and Crime Commissioners have a statutory responsibility to produce a Police and Crime Plan.
The findings of the online consultation will be used to inform the strategic policing priorities, aims and objectives in the next Avon and Somerset Police and Crime Plan.
This will then be presented to the Police and Crime Panel for review, before being published on October.
The consultation closes on Tuesday, August 30, 2016.
