Police Commissioner urges people to have their say on a new Police and Crime Plan for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough

POLICE and Crime Commissioner, Darryl Preston, is today (14th July) reminding members of the public that there is still time to share their views about crime and policing in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough in his survey which runs until 30th July.

The Commissioner wants local residents and businesses to provide their views as he begins to develop a new Police and Crime Plan for the county. Once fully developed, the Plan will set out the policing and crime priorities for the next 3 years.

“From early discussions with people across the county, a number of priority areas have emerged which can be captured within five broad themes: community priorities, crime prevention, how victims and witnesses are supported, ethical policing and robust enforcement,” explains Darryl.

“It is important to me that the Police and Crime Plan means something to local people and reflects their concerns and lived experiences. There are still over two weeks to go so please take the time to have your say.”

Once published, the Plan will set out how:

  • People get the help they need
  • The Chief Constable delivers an effective service
  • Money is spent to support projects and services
  • Decisions are made in an open and honest way, and everyone’s needs are considered

Comments received will help inform the content of the full Plan and detailed priorities as it is developed.
