Police and Crime Plan

The Commissioner has produced a Police & Crime plan to cover the period 2013 – 2018 which you can find here.

The plan was developed using the views of local people making sure it meets their policing needs.  The Commissioner spoke to 1000’s of people, meeting students at local 6th Forms Centres, chatting to travellers on the metro and listening to shoppers at shopping centres across the force area.  In addition to this nearly 5000 people completed the online survey – so this Police & Crime plan really reflects the views of local residents.

The Commissioner also seeks the views of people from communities which are protected by the Equalities Act 2010.  These groups represent communities focusing on Age, Gender, Religion and Belief, Disability, BME, and LGBT. The plan continues to evolve and be updated.  The Commissioner monitors the performance of Northumbria Police and links in and supports the work of Community Safety Partnerships.

This section is split into the five priorities which are :

  • Violence Against Women and Girls
  • Community Confidence
  • Anti-Social Behaviour
  • Reducing Crime
  • Putting Victims First
