Your next phone call here in Wiltshire could come from survey staff, working for the Police and Crime Commissioner.

Angus Macpherson's team is ringing around 2,000 homes over the next few weeks.

Mr. Macpherson says he is underaking this research, according to the laws governing his job.

It will cover things like the way people's local areas are policed, quality of life, and fear of crime. Each survey should last 15 minutes.

The PCC said:

"The information helps me to commission services from Wiltshire Police and helps senior police officers to understand the needs and priorities of the people they protect.

“So my message is that, if you get a call, please remember that your view counts."

Mr. Macpherson says surveys will take place every year and be shared with officers to ensure information is up to date.

Chief Supt Paul Mills, Head of Local Policing, said:

"If you get a call and have any concerns about the validity of the caller, please call 101, the non-emergency number for Wiltshire Police, and ask for Ruth McGee on extension 2396."
