We are asking Derbyshire residents to air their views about local policing in a series of public consultation events so that we can find out what local people think about policing and the broader crime agenda. This initiative replaces the 'Have Your Say' consultation as the County's largest annual feedback scheme and will invite local people to take part in a survey about policing.
A series of events will be held over the coming months to promote the questionnaire and help Commissioner Charles understand the differing needs of Derbyshire’s diverse communities. The information will be used to guide the Commissioner’s plans to make the County safer and help the Force allocate resources to where they are needed most.
The first ‘Over to You’ event will take place on Friday 27th March 2015 at Ripley and Heanor marketplaces and will be closely followed by similar activities in supermarkets and shopping centres across Derbyshire. Commissioner Charles will also ask for support from key community groups such as Neighbourhood Watch and 50+ Forums to encourage residents to take part in the survey.
The 2015 ‘Over to You’ programme will run from March to September and the results will be published in December. A key element of the consultation events will be providing crime prevention advice to residents to help them protect themselves and their property from crime.
Please note, we have now published a summary report of our 2014 'Over to You' campaign which can be viewed here
