Draft Police and Crime Plan 2021-2025

The Police and Crime Plan is a legal document that the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC) must produce under the Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act 2011.

Elected in May 2021, Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) Mark Shelford has published his draft Police and Crime Plan 2021-2025.

One of the PCC’s statutory duties is to issue a Police and Crime Plan for the force area. This plan will include various aspects about policing of the area, how the Chief Constable will be held to account and how the PCC will use the money to deliver an effective and efficient police service and support other services such as victim support.

The PCC’s priorities and objectives are the cornerstone of a Police and Crime Plan. As the PCC is the bridge between local people and the police, it is essential that they consult with the public, including victims of crime, about their proposed Police and Crime Plan and direction for policing in the area.

PCC Mark Shelford consulted with local people via an online survey and postal survey for 12 weeks and received over 4,100 responses.

The draft Police and Crime Plan will be published until Monday 8 November and PCC Mark Shelford would like as many local people, partners and stakeholders to provide feedback. Feedback – positive or negative – can be sent to

Please be aware that not every email will be responded to but every email will be read by the OPCC.

The final plan, which will be in a branded format, will be available in early December as both an online and paper version.
