The Commissioners Call for Evidence – Contribute to developing the North Wales Police and Crime Plan
The Police Commissioner for North Wales is inviting residents of North Wales to submit their views to help inform a Police and Crime Plan for North Wales
“It is my responsibility to prepare a Police and Crime Plan for North Wales. The Plan will set the direction for the police service in North Wales for the next few years. It is very important to me that I set that Plan with as much information and knowledge as possible, and I am calling on the people, businesses, voluntary and public sector in North Wales to take this opportunity to share with me their views and experiences of police and crime matters in North Wales.
During my election campaign I was fortunate enough to meet many people and hear their views on policing, but I also know that many people in the area have not shared their views with me yet.
I want to know how the service has helped you, how you think it could work better for you and what matters to you most about the service.
My role and the Police and Crime Plan will extend beyond the police service. I therefore wish to receive views as to whether or not we are working well enough with our partners to reduce crime and make our communities safer.”
The Commissioner will be carefully analysing crime trends, assessments of risk, threat and the financial resources available to policing over the coming months and “it is only right that people’s experiences become an integral part of developing the North Wales Plan”
The Call for evidence will be everyone’s opportunity to tell the Commissioner what they think is important about crime and policing, and why.
From the 12 December, the Commissioners website will be able to takesubmissions, whether they are short comments or detailed research on policing and crime matters in North Wales. Alternatively you can e-mail the Commissioners office OPCC@nthwales.pnn.police.uk or write to Police and Crime Commissioner, Glan-Y-Don, Colwyn Bay, LL29 8AW
The draft Police and Crime Plan will be presented to the Police and Crime Panel for North Wales on the 27 of February 2013. Thereafter the Commissioner will be requesting people to provide feedback on the implementation of the Police and Crime Plan, to ensure that there is continued learning and feedback from those who are in receipt of the policing services in North Wales.
