650 more police officers, Local Bobbies for every community, 10 more police stations. What’s next?

Dear resident
Today, I have launched a public consultation to develop my new Police and Crime Plan.
The consultation, which is open for 10 weeks, will help set clear policing priorities over the next four years to deliver the best-in-class police force that you so rightly deserve.
Being re-elected as your Police and Crime Commissioner for a second term is an overwhelming endorsement of the work I’ve delivered to date, specifically the recruitment of 650 additional police officers, bringing back named and contactable Local Bobbies for every community and opening 10 more police stations and front counters.
Now, I want get started on what we can do next. By hearing from you, I can develop policies and initiatives that resonate with the unique needs of where you live.
Each pledge in my new plan will be designed based on direct feedback from you.
Your views will form the bedrock of my new Police and Crime Plan which is why I want to hear from as many people as possible.
