Warwickshire Police and Crime Commissioner Philip Seccombe has unveiled his draft Police and Crime Plan for consultation with communities and partners across the county.
With the aim of creating a safer, more secure Warwickshire, the plan sets out the Commissioner’s aims for the next four years and shows how he will work with Warwickshire Police, partner agencies and the public to improve crime and community safety.
The plan identifies four key objectives:
- Putting victims and survivors first
- Ensuring efficient and effective policing
- Protecting people from harm
- Preventing and reducing crime.
Each objective sets specific and measurable aims for achievement and has been designed to take account of the feedback from the extensive eight-week public consultation that took place earlier this summer.
Warwickshire Police and Crime Commissioner Philip Seccombe said: “I am delighted to be able to unveil my first Police and Crime Plan, which is designed to make Warwickshire safer and more secure, building upon the strong foundations which already exist. It will enable Warwickshire Police to transform to meet the changing nature of crime, with well-trained officers and staff supported by investment in state-of-the-art technology, while retaining strong, visible neighbourhood policing as its bedrock.
“It also sets out how Warwickshire Police and my office will work with partner agencies to deliver improvements in community safety, with a specific focus on protecting the most vulnerable in society. Overall I am very confident it will deliver a safer and more secure Warwickshire for residents, businesses and visitors.
“In creating this draft plan I have taken soundings from across the county from the public, victims of crime, police officers and staff as well as partner agencies, who have all played an important part in shaping the content. As I work towards creating the final version, I am keen for further feedback, so I look forward to hearing from communities across Warwickshire over the next few weeks.”
The plan is out for consultation until Friday October 28, 2016 and you can give your views in a number of ways:
