Acting Police and Crime Commissioner, Ray Bisby is asking people to tell him their views about supporting police funding in a short survey launched on Wednesday 8th January 2020.
The amount of money being given to police forces from central government and the rules over how much the policing part of council tax (precept) can be raised have been delayed due to the December General election.
In order to support the Chief Constable to deliver a policing service which is as resilient as it can be, the Commissioner would be grateful if you could spare a moment or two to complete his survey.
A link to the survey can be found here: Link to the Commissioner’s survey.
The survey runs from Wednesday 8th until Monday 27th January 2020.
Please note – views can also be given by telephone: 0300 333 3456 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
There are lots of ways in which members of the public can get involved in policing, from helping the Commissioner to set policing objectives to becoming a volunteer.
A Police and Crime Commissioner has a duty to consult with members of the public and take their views into account when developing the Police and Crime Plan. This engagement is done in many different ways such as:
- meeting people in the community
- attending local events, meetings
- contributing to partnership groups, and
- online engagement (including the forums on this website)
You can find out more about any forthcoming priority setting meetings and events in your area by visiting the ‘Local Policing’ section of the Cambridgeshire Constabulary website for details.
The Commissioner values the opinions of people who live and work in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough and wants more people to get involved with policing. The Commissioner runs regular surgeries to hear any concerns and issues from members of the public. Details of any future surgeries can be found in the events section of this website. Contact the Commissioner’s office if you would like to book an appointment.
The Commissioner is always looking for people to volunteer for the Independent Custody Visitors’ Scheme.
There are also many opportunities to volunteer for the Constabulary: for example by joining the Cambridgeshire Special Constabulary http://www.cambs-police.co.uk/recruitment/specials/ joining the StreetWatch scheme in Peterborough or a Speedwatch scheme in your local area.
