A MESSAGE FROM THAMES VALLEY POLICE

 

The Police and Crime Commissioner Anthony Stansfeld has launched a survey seeking feedback from residents of the Thames Valley on policing and crime.  The results of the survey will help inform the next Police and Crime Plan which is due to be published in March 2017.   

 

The survey will give the residents of your Parish the opportunity to feedback any concerns or issues about policing as well as what they think Thames Valley Police should be prioritising for the next five years with regards to crime and I am writing to ask whether you would be able to support us in publicising the survey to your community.

 

The survey is hosted on the Police and Crime Commissioner website www.thamesvalley-pcc.gov.uk/survey.  It should take no more than 10 minutes to complete and is open until 30 September 2016.  Anyone who is either living or working in the Thames Valley is eligible to complete it.

 

We would appreciate any support you can provide in distributing the survey such as an article in a Parish newsletter, sending it out through your own distribution lists, social media and websites. The survey also seeks the views from victims of crime with the aim of improving the victims experience.

 

Hard copies of the survey are also available on request by contacting the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner on 01865 846780.

 

I’ve provided some copy below on what the survey is about which you can use in any distribution as you see fit.  If you have any questions, please contact me on the number below.

 

The Police and Crime Commissioner for the Thames Valley would like your views on policing and crime.

 

This Summer, the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner is seeking views from the residents of Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire on policing and crime.  This feedback will help inform the Police and Crime Plan which sets the priorities for Thames Valley Police for the next 5 years.

 

What concerns you about policing in your area?  What would you like Thames Valley Police to prioritise with regards to crime?  Have you been a victim of crime and would like to feedback your experience? 

 

To give your views, you can complete a short online survey at www.thamesvalley-pcc.gov.uk/survey.  It should take no more than 10 minutes to complete and will be open until Friday 30th September 2016.

 

If you would like a copy of the survey posted to you, please contact the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner on 01865 846780

 

Many thanks

 

Kind regards,
