PCC Mark Shelford continues to encourage local people and communities to complete his Police and Crime Survey before it closes in six weeks’ time on 20th September.
The newly elected PCC is asking Avon and Somerset residents to tell him what policing issues matter most to them to help form the Police and Crime Plan.
The survey includes a number of questions focusing on the draft Police and Crime Plan priorities and objectives covering a range of topics including business crime, rural crime, hate crime, domestic abuse and burglary. The survey also asks local people about police openness and transparency.
“We’ve had a great response already to the Police and Crime Survey but we want to continue to hear from as many local people from all walks of life right up until it closes. The survey is an opportunity for residents, businesses and partners to tell me their views, thoughts and concerns about policing in their villages, towns and cities.
“As PCC, I am the bridge between local people and the police, and I want as many people to tell me what they want their police service to focus on. The survey takes just 10 minutes to complete and will make a real difference to policing in your communities.PCC Mark Shelford
The survey will help shape the Police and Crime Plan for the force area. The Plan, which is a legal document, includes various aspects about the 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 providers.
