New PCC wants your views on keeping Norfolk safe
Newly-elected Police and Crime Commissioner, Lorne Green, is asking Norfolk residents to share their views and help shape his Police and Crime Plan for 2016-2020.
Lorne's public consultation, which closes on 12 August, is currently running online in the form of a short survey, and he will be spending the coming weeks meeting with people, groups and organisations across the county to gather their views on crime and policing.
Based on the feedback received to his consultation, the PCC will then develop his Police and Crime Plan, to be published in the Autumn, which will outline what he will work to achieve over his four-year term, as well as setting out the objectives for policing, the resources that will be made available to the Chief Constable and how performance will be measured.
Launching the consultation, Lorne said: “My Police and Crime Plan will set out how we, as a county, tackle crime and disorder between now and 2020.
“In setting that plan, I must meet requirements set by the Home Secretary, such as ensuring our police have the capacity and capability to respond to threats like cybercrime, terrorism and child sexual abuse.
“I must also take into account what victims of crime, our police, partners and other agencies identify as the key issues affecting Norfolk.
“The final piece of the jigsaw, and the part that will enable me to ensure the needs of Norfolk people are considered, is the community perspective on crime and policing.
“During my campaign to become your PCC, I spoke with many people living and working in different parts of our county, and began the process of finding out about the issues of most concern to them.
“To build on what I heard, and get a fuller picture of what matters to our communities, I am asking people to share with me their views on crime and policing. Your views are crucial to ensuring the approach we take over the next four years is the right one for our county.”
