Police And Crime Commissioner Donna Jones Calls On Communities To Help Shape Policing

Police and Crime Commissioner Donna Jones has opened a public consultation to develop her next Police and Crime Plan.

After being re-elected in May, the Commissioner is keen to begin gathering feedback from the public on how she can work with the Chief Constable over the next four years to deliver a best-in-class police force.

The Commissioner’s duty as an elected official is to listen to public concerns and set the local policing priorities on the public’s behalf.

Each priority in the new plan will be designed based on direct feedback from residents.  

Police and Crime Commissioner Donna Jones said:

“As your Commissioner, I represent you and your concerns. My role enables you to have a direct say on policing in your area and holding your police force to account.

“Being re-elected as your Police and Crime Commissioner for a second term is an overwhelming endorsement of the work I’ve delivered to date.

"Specifically the recruitment of 650 additional police officers, bringing back named and contactable Local Bobbies for every community and opening 10 more police stations and front counters. What’s next? That’s up to you.

“Now, I want get started on the next four years. By hearing from you, I can develop policies and initiatives that resonate with the unique needs of where you live."

The Commissioner fulfilled all of the public’s pledges in her previous Police and Crime Plan More Police Safer Streets.

The survey to inform the next plan will be open for 10 weeks from June 10 – August 19.

The results will be published in the autumn.
