A click here and a tick there…and in two minutes you can help to improve community safety in Derbyshire.
An online survey is gathering residents’ views to help Police and Crime Commissioner Alan Charles and his Deputy Hardyal Dhindsa ensure that policing across the city and county does what they want it to do. And the more people decide to click and tick, the stronger the point being made.
“Taking just a couple of minutes to fill in my survey will provide information which accurately reflects what people living in Derbyshire think about policing and crime and helps us to understand what their priorities are,” said Mr Dhindsa. “This is their chance to make a difference not only on their own patch but further afield.”
“In some parts of the county, the greatest concerns might be about burglary. In others it could be violence. Elsewhere, the focus might be more on cybercrime or the increasing threat of terrorism. Whatever your concerns, we need to know what they are to inform the Police and Crime Plan, and the Chief Constable needs to know so that he can direct his officers to greatest effect.”
The Commissioner and Deputy, together with members of the Commissioner’s Office, police officers and community safety teams, has been out and about on a major county-wide consultation exercise during the past few months. “What residents have told us has been really valuable, and we are all grateful for the time they have taken in sharing their experiences,” he said.
“Realistically, it’s impossible to talk with all our residents but vast numbers can tell us what they think online – and I urge them to do this. This really is a great opportunity for people to have their say in how their county is policed, and I can assure everyone who takes part that every click and tick will count towards making Derbyshire a safer place to be.”
