Norfolk’s police and crime commissioner, Lorne Green, has launched a public consultation in a bid to help set the county’s policing priorities during his term in office.
The eight-week survey, which begins today, will be used to help Mr Green draw up his police and crime plan, which is set to be published in the autumn.
The document will set out police priorities, the resources to be made available to the force and how performance will be assessed.
And Mr Green, who was elected last month, said: “My police and crime plan will set out how we, as a county, tackle crime and disorder between now and 2020.
“In setting that plan, I must meet requirements set by the Home Secretary, such as ensuring our police have the capacity and capability to respond to threats like cybercrime, terrorism and child sexual abuse.
“The final piece of the jigsaw, and the part that will enable me to ensure the needs of Norfolk people are considered, is the community perspective on crime and policing.
“During my campaign, I spoke with many people living and working in different parts of our county, and began the process of finding out about the issues of most concern to them.
“To build on what I heard, and get a fuller picture of what matters to our communities, I am asking people to share with me their views on crime and policing.”
He added: “Your views are crucial to ensuring the approach we take over the next four years is the right one for our county.”
Mr Green plans to tour the county during the consultation period, which continues until August 12, to seek people’s views, as well as attending a number of public meetings.
