PEOPLE in Derbyshire are being asked to air their views about local policing in a series of public consultation events.
The ‘Over to You’ consultation programme has been launched by Derbyshire police and crime commissioner Alan Charles and Chief Constable Mick Creedon to find out what people think about policing and the broader crime agenda.
The initiative replaces the ‘Have Your Say’ consultation as the county’s largest annual feedback scheme and will invite people to take part in a survey about policing.
A series of events will be held over the coming months to promote the questionnaire and help Mr Charles understand the differing needs of Derbyshire’s diverse communities.
The information will be used to guide the commissioner’s plans to make the county safer and help the force allocate resources to where they are needed most.
The ‘Over to You’ programme will run from February to October and the results will be published in December.
A key element of the consultation events will be providing crime prevention advice to residents to help them protect themselves and their property from crime.
