Community views shape policing priorities

Communities are given a voice and chance to shape local policing priorities, as the results of a survey commissioned by PCC John Campion are published.

The Town and Parish Council Survey found that the majority of respondents felt police were doing a good or fair job, but that there are a number of areas to work on including police visibility, rural crime and road safety.

The majority of respondents said that crime and anti-social behaviour was 'not a big problem' in their community, were familiar with their local policing teams and found the police accessible, however there were some mixed responses around confidence in the police, and how well they work with local councils.

Commissioner John Campion said "The findings are reflective of the plans already in place, reinforcing the understanding of the relationship between communities and police. It is reassuring to see that the relationship between councils and police is generally good at a local level but there are some clear areas to improve- visibility of frontline policing is a priority and I have invested to protect this.

Rural crime and road safety are other priorities, with campaigns to address and my commitment to ensure police have the resources to tackle these issues at an operational level."
