Wiltshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner Philip Wilkinson has launched the next phase of his Police and Crime Plan consultation – and he still wants you to use your voice to influence it!
Part of the PCC’s role is to produce a Police and Crime Plan for the county.
Making Wiltshire Safer, directly informed by those who responded to his Use Your Voice survey, is now available for people to comment on in a draft format.
This draft plan sets out the PCC’s pledges and priorities for Wiltshire as well as being the blueprint for Wiltshire Police’s strategic policing and crime priorities until mid 2025.
The PCC received just under 3,000 survey respondents from residents, charities, community groups, councillors from across all local authorities alongside interested stakeholders like Neighbourhood Watch and the National Farmers’ Union.
The PCC’s Youth Commission has also been surveying young people in Wiltshire and feeding their information back into his plan. So far in excess of 1,000 young people have used their influence too.
Since his election, the PCC has been clear that his new police and crime plan should reflect the needs and priorities of all our communities.
So, once approved, the new Police and Crime Plan will ensure both the force and the PCC’s office are working towards the same goals in a joined-up, co-ordinated, approach and delivering what the community wants from its police force.
It also will be the way the PCC holds the Chief Constable to account for delivering these priorities – your priorities.
