I have produced a Police & Crime plan to cover the period 2017 – 2021 which you can find by clicking the following link Police and Crime Plan 2017 – 2021

To ensure i fully understood what local people thought about policing and community safety, a range of engagements were held by me which included public meetings in every local authority (two in Northumberland due to its geographical size), attendance at community groups, faith groups and a wide range of other local groups and associations.  It was appreciated that not everyone could attend meetings, so an on-line and telephone survey was set up which was completed by more than 3,000 people. The surveys and events were promoted on social media, posters in doctor’s surgeries and community venues, websites including local councils, Northumbria Police, my own website and in all secondary schools.

I also sought 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.  I also listened to the views of victims of crime. My Advisory Groups were also held throughout the year to shape my thinking and also thinking about policing and support me in my scrutiny role.

This section is split into the six priorities which are:

  • Domestic and Sexual Abuse
  • Putting Victims First
  • Effective Criminal Justice System
  • Reducing Anti-Social Behaviour
  • Cutting Crime
  • Community Confidence

Northumbria Police are developing a Delivery Plan that will translate high level ambitions and commitments in the Police and Crime Plan 2017-21 into direct action. Please watch out for this coming soon.
