PCC publishes first Police and Crime PlanLorne Green has published his first Police and Crime Plan as Norfolk's Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC).
The Plan, which sets seven core priorities for Norfolk, outlines the PCC's vision for tackling and preventing crime, protecting the most vulnerable and supporting victims.
Introducing the Plan, the PCC said: "During my election campaign, I pledged to be the PCC for every man, woman and child in Norfolk and give everyone a voice in how our county is policed. I started to do this through an eight-week countywide consultation on crime and policing priorities last summer, the responses to which I have drawn upon to help set the priorities in this Police and Crime Plan.
"Due to the work and commitment of Norfolk Constabulary and other partners, we are fortunate to live in one of the safest places in the country. But as I travelled the length and breadth of Norfolk hearing from people about their concerns and the issues they face, it made me more determined than ever to lead the fight against crime, to give our police force the resources it needs to invest in frontline policing, to ensure it has the capacity to tackle domestic abuse, sexual offences and cyber-related crime, and to support and protect victims of crime helping them recover from their experiences."
Alongside his own pledge to be visible, accessible and accountable to the people of Norfolk, the PCC has set the following priorities:
- Increase visible policing
- Support rural communities
- Improve road safety
- Prevent offending
- Support victims and reduce vulnerability
- Deliver a modern, innovative service
- Good stewardship of taxpayers' money.
"Norfolk is our county, Norfolk Constabulary is our police force, and this is our Police and Crime Plan. I look forward to working with you over the years ahead to deliver it."
