I am pleased to present to you a draft copy of my Police and Crime Plan for 2021-2024, which you will find here.
The plan sets out my vision for policing and community safety in Cheshire. It also details the strategic priorities for Cheshire Constabulary over the next three years, as well as setting out how I'll hold the Chief Constable to account against these priorities.
The plan has been produced with Cheshire residents' priorities for community safety at its heart. It details how
I will make the promises I made during my election campaign a reality.
The overarching priorities in the plan from now until 2024 are to:
The plan also includes a commitment to take police officer numbers in Cheshire to 2,345 – their highest level in modern times and to continue to invest in neighbourhood policing to ensure there is a visible policing presence in all local communities.
Your views on whether this plan delivers your priorities for policing and crime are invaluable in ensuring it makes Cheshire safer. Now it's your opportunity have your say before the plan is finalised during the autumn.
As well as completing the survey yourself, I would be grateful if you could cascade this information across your networks to ensure the draft plan and survey reaches all of our communities.
I look forward to hearing local peoples' views and to continuing these conversations over the coming years to understand key concerns in our communities and how I can work with local communities to develop sustainable solutions.
The consultation closes at 23.59 hours on Sunday 15 August 2021.
Once the consultation is closed, the responses will be analysed and amendments to the plan will be made before the final draft is presented at the September meeting of Cheshire's Police and Crime Panel.
