I am delighted to present my Police and Crime Plan, which aims to create “a safer, more secure Warwickshire” for all our residents, communities, businesses and visitors.
As Commissioner I have a statutory duty to secure an efficient and effective police service for Warwickshire and to ensure the Chief Constable and the force are accountable and responsible to the communities they serve.
Another important part of my role is to ensure that partnerships are effective and provide protection and support for the most vulnerable in our society. This plan will work alongside the Warwickshire Community Safety Agreement to achieve this and I will also ensure that public monies are targeted to encourage organisations to deliver outstanding services, especially to the victims of crime.
In creating this plan I have listened very carefully to the views of the public and victims of crime, both during my election campaign and through the comprehensive public consultation I carried out upon taking office. I have also met with police officers and staff to seek their opinions, as well as the partner organisations involved with community safety and the many voluntary and third sector organisations who enhance the delivery of a fair policing and judicial process.
The nature of crime is changing and the way our communities are policed needs to reflect that, while also recognising that the public rightly expects strong and visible community-based policing as its bedrock.

The four key objectives of my plan are:-
You can read more about the work being carried out to meet each of the objectives by clicking on the menu to the left.
In each objective I have been clear on what my approach will be, what I will hold the Chief Constable and others to account for, and what outcomes I am seeking to achieve.
A separate Delivery Plan details the precise activity being undertaken to achieve these objectives, as well as stating who is delivering each element, how progress is monitored and what success looks like.
