"Since my election as your Police and Crime Commissioner last year I have been listening to the public and engaging with organisations to hear what they need from Northumbria Police, and now is the time to start turning that feedback into action.
Today I am launching a major public consultation on my next Police and Crime Plan. This will set out the strategic priorities for the next four years, and, just as importantly, it will set out how I hold the chief constable to account in delivering on these for you.
In launching this consultation I am asking communities and organisations to consider the future of our local policing needs under three main themes – Fighting Crime, Preventing Crime and Improving Lives. I’ve explained in more detail what these themes cover on my website. In order to gather views on these I have launched a survey asking people what they need from the force and I’d be grateful if you could take the time to fill this in and share this survey with others.
... it’s vital your views .. are heard during this consultation. I would be grateful if you could share this survey link with .. residents and local organisations and encourage them to have their say.
Later this year I’ll be producing the first draft of the Police and Crime Plan, and I’ll be back in touch with you then to get your views ahead of the final version".
