As your new Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire and the City of York I have pledged to be a voice for our communities. I will ensure police and fire leaders are supported and challenged to be the best they can, and will stand up for where we live and the brave police officers, firefighters and police and fire staff and volunteers who work so hard to protect us every day.

One of my first duties will be to set the precepts for North Yorkshire Police and North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service, something every Commissioner has to do every year.

This year, more than ever, it is really important that I hear from as many people as possible. It is never easy asking for more money, and I know that many individuals and families are facing financial pressures in this difficult climate. But so are our services and I want to make sure that our police and fire services are able to continue to invest in the safety of our communities for years to come.

My survey begins on Monday 13 December and is open until midnight on Thursday 13 January 2022.

The survey can be completed online at

I’d be extremely grateful if you could help promote the online survey on your website, download, print out and pin up the poster on your public notice boards, and mention the survey at your public meetings and when you are engaging with your community. If you use social media, please look out for #TellCommissionerZoe and #HaveYourSay and please re-tweet and share.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Thank you very much for your support.

Kind regards

Zoë Metcalfe
