We are fortunate to live in one of the safest parts of Britain. Strong communities, an unprecedented investment in police officers and organisations that work better with one another have helped reduce crime year after year.
However, issues like antisocial behaviour, drugs, violence and dangerous driving still blight too many lives. I want to build on the work done so far to make us even safer, with world class policing.
My draft Police and Crime Plan prioritises the issues that matter most to our communities, using the latest data from surveys, public feedback and Government.
But it is essential that the voice of our communities is reflected in the plan, which sets the strategic direction for the force, the activities we focus on, the partnerships we build and the services we commission.
So thank you for taking a few minutes to answer the questions below. Your answers will be vital in informing the decisions that lie ahead.
