Bring your voice to local policing

Bring your voice to local policing Police and Crime Commissioner Arfon Jones and Chief Constable Mark Polin want your views to help shape the future of policing in North Wales A series of open meetings are planned across the force area to give residents, community groups, businesses and partners the opportunity to help shape and develop the next Police and Crime Plan for North Wales. PCC Jones said: “Everyone who lives or works in North Wales will have a view on what should be a policing priority for their area. Listening to local people is one of the most important parts of my role and it is vital that people have a true voice in policing. This is the police service for North Wales and it is only right and proper that everyone has a chance to have their say.” The Police and Crime Plan will set out the strategic priorities, aims and objectives for North Wales Police for the next four years. Chief Constable Polin said: “Everyone has a right to be safe and feel safe, However, the threats to safety are changing and people are now more likely to be subjected to crime committed online and the national rise in serious and potentially very harmful threats, such as from Child Sexual Exploitation, are emerging locally too. “I want communities to know that we care, to be sighted on the challenges we face in safeguarding them and to feel informed about how we are, and will continue, to respond to those challenges with their help. Providing good quality policing services remains at the centre of what we do, and we are placing significant priority on this as an organisation. “Hearing what our communities think about the service we deliver and the trust and confidence that they place in us is also incredibly important.” Open meetings, with everyone welcome, will be held at: Bangor Football Club on Tuesday, November 1 at 6.30 pm.
