The Police and Crime Commissioner, Paddy Tipping, has refreshed his Police and Crime Plan 2013-18 to reflect his commitment to keep it under review, and make changes in light of new and emerging priorities for policing. The Commissioner said:
“This refreshed Police and Crime Plan takes a good look again at the key aims and objectives I identified when first elected. The actions in that original plan are now well underway and together with my Deputy, Chris Cutland, I would like to thank all the Police Officers, Police Staff, Volunteers, our partners and communities who have been working hard to increase community safety and confidence in Nottinghamshire.”
Crime and public safety matter to everyone, but the police cannot tackle these alone. Reducing crime depends on strong communities, active citizens and agencies that respond to public concerns. The intention is to continue with the Police and Crime Plan’s bold strategies and clear targets to reduce crime, achieve safer communities, improve trust and confidence in high quality policing, ensure fairer treatment of victims and citizens and demonstrate using public resources wisely.
However, there will be even more focus on strong partnership working, encouraging more volunteering and engagement with communities to support local crime prevention work and cut reoffending.
Developing the refreshed Police and Crime Plan has also included continuous consultation and engagement feedback from partners and communities on those issues and aspirations for policing that matter to them locally. There are still live consultation exercises taking place to gather information to feed into the final refreshed Police and Crime Plan from surveys on priorities and budgets, victims and domestic violence. These surveys can be found on the HERE .
The draft refreshed Plan was discussed at the Police and Crime Panel Meeting held on the 3rd February 2014.
