Cambridgeshire: Commissioner Crime Plan
The Cambridgeshire Police and Crime Commissioner, Sir Graham Bright wants the public's views on his draft plan for policing.
Protecting frontline policing, growing the number of Special constables and tackling anti-social behaviour, burglary and drug misuse are just some of the personal pledges Sir Graham Bright launches in his draft Police and Crime Plan.
Building on last year’s plan, Sir Graham’s overarching draft police and crime objectives are:
- Maintain local police performance
- Deliver policing within the available budget
- Continue to tackle crime and disorder, with a focus on anti-social behaviour, dwelling burglary, organised crime and drugs misuse
- Keeping people safe, with a focus on domestic abuse, vulnerable people - specifically child sexual exploitation and hate crime and reducing re-offending
- Maintain the resilience of protective services, with a focus on policing the roads and tackling extremism
Sir Graham said: "I’m a firm believer in evolution, not revolution.
We have a good police service in Cambridgeshire and my draft Police and Crime Plan builds on the excellent work that has already been done.
I have always said that I don’t want to interfere with something that is working well, but I will work with others to seek improvements in areas that need them.
Policing cannot be one size fits all.
Different local communities have different needs and I want this Plan to support that flexibility at a local level.
Each of the pledges I have made in my plan has been made in response to issues raised with me by members of the public during my election campaign.
What I want to know is do my pledges sound about right and are they a true reflection of what I think people are telling me?
I’m asking the public what they think, which will help me refine the Plan throughout the term of my appointment."
The draft plan will be reviewed by the Police and Crime Panel at a public meeting on March 21.
Members of the public are asked to send their comments to email@example.com or write to the Cambridgeshire Police and Crime Commissioner, South Cambridgeshire Hall, Cambourne Business Park, Cambourne, Cambridge, CB23 6EA.
