I’m asking everyone to share their views on how we keep communities safe as I launch a three-month consultation on the people’s priorities for policing, fire and rescue and victims’ services.
Ensuring our communities are as safe as possible is my number one priority but while I have lots of ideas of how we can achieve that, I want to ensure my plans for the future reflect the people’s priorities. To do that, I need to know what they are.
New Commissioners are required by law to set out their plans for the length of their term and I want to hear from as many people before Sunday 7 November as we develop our Police and Crime Plan, and Fire and Rescue Plan for 2021-2024.
This wide-ranging and extensive consultation – ‘Your Safety, Your Priorities, Your Plans’ is part of my commitment to ensure transparency in decision-making and ensure we can make a difference to the lives of everyone across North Yorkshire and York.
In the coming months, I will be across our area and look forward to meeting with many of you. Everyone can also have their say online in my survey and I would ask you to take the short amount of time needed to take part by answering the questions and giving your honest views.
Thank you in advance for your help.
The consultation documents are also available in a variety of accessible formats from my office which can be contacted on 01423 569 562, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or writing to the Office of the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner, 12 Granby Road, Harrogate HG1 4ST.
With best wishes
