Putting Communities First
We will ensure the police and other partners are listening to the public and working with them to act on their concerns and supporting them to assist themselves. From initial contact to rural and business crime, anti-social behaviour, hate crime and speeding.
One of the Police and Crime Commissioner’s most important jobs is to provide a link between the police and communities, listening to local people and making sure their concerns are addressed.
In Cambridgeshire, the Police and Crime Commissioner engages with local residents in a number of different ways including meeting people in the community, face to face ‘surgery’ appointments, or telephone/virtual meetings, focus groups and public meetings.
The Commissioner is supporting the county’s six Community Safety Partnerships (CSPs) to work in partnership to reduce local issues of crime and disorder in each district. CSPs are made up of local agencies which includes police, Fire and Rescue, Probation Service, local authorities and health.
The Commissioner is committed to supporting the county’s Vision Zero Partnership and their ambition to achieve zero road deaths or serious injuries in Cambridgeshire by 2040.
You can find out more about the Vision Zero Partnership by visiting: www.cprsp.co.uk.
The Commissioner is also committed to supporting local people to protect themselves from becoming victims of scammers. Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Against Scams Partnership (CAPASP) is a county-wide partnership of public, private and voluntary sector organisations committed to working together to stamp out scammers across the county.
