The Police and Crime Survey is now closed
After 12 weeks of running, the Police and Crime Survey is now closed. Thank you to everybody who took the time and effort to complete the survey.
Over the coming weeks, the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC) will be analysing the survey responses in order to build a picture of which priorities matter most to the residents of Avon and Somerset. The survey findings will help to shape the Police and Crime Plan for the force area.
The Police and Crime Survey
On 6 May 2021 Mark Shelford was elected as the new Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) for Avon and Somerset. You can find out more about what the PCC does.
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.
