As your Police and Crime Commissioner I am responsible for producing a Police and Crime Plan which sets out how policing is delivered in Cheshire over the next three years.

The plan details how I will work with the Chief Constable and key partners to make Cheshire safer.

I am pleased to present to you my draft plan which has been produced with Cheshire residents' priorities for community safety at its heart.

The overarching priorities from now until 2024 are to:

·         Prevent and tackle crime

·         Make Cheshire’s roads safer

·         Deliver justice for victims of crime

·         Protect vulnerable people

·         Improve public confidence in policing

·         Modernise our police force

You can read the draft plan here.

Now it's time for you to have your say on whether the plan delivers for you and your communities.

Please take the time to complete this short survey - it should take no longer than 10 minutes. 

I look forward to hearing your views and to continuing these conversations over the coming years to understand key concerns in our communities and how I can work with you to develop sustainable solutions. 

Thank you

John Dwyer
Police and Crime Commissioner for Cheshire

Question Title

* 5. A key priority within the plan is to improve road safety and reduce the number of deaths and serious injuries occurring on Cheshire's roads by promoting safer driving. The Commissioner wants the Constabulary to work closely with partners to educate road users and put in place measures to reduce speeding.

How do you agree with this priority?

Question Title

* 6. The plan prioritises delivering justice for victims of crime by ensuring they are supported through every stage of the criminal justice system and that they are satisfied with the service they've received. It also looks to do this by ensuring every crime is recorded appropriately, crime detections are increased and reoffending is reduced. 

How do you agree with his priority?

Question Title

* 7. Protecting vulnerable people is also a key priority within the plan. The Commissioner wants Cheshire Constabulary to do this by tackling violence against women and girls, extending mental health support, protecting children and young people and tackling hate crime and bullying.

How do you agree with this priority?

Question Title

* 8. The plan sets out the Commissioner's vision to ensure Cheshire Constabulary is a modern force which keeps up with the latest developments in how policing is delivered. He will do this by reviewing the police estate, increasing opportunities for volunteers, ensuring the force delivers value for money and making the force carbon neutral by 2040.

How do you agree with his priority?
