Community Conversation Consultation
During 2014/15 the Police and Crime Commissioner undertook a period of public consultation and engagement, a 'community conversation'. This included conversations out and about in communities and a web chat but also an online questionnaire that asked the following questions:
- How well do people get on in your local community?
- What do you consider the main threats faced by communities across England and Wales?
- What are the three issues relating to road safety that cause you the most concern/matter to you the most?
- Have you or a member of your family ever been a victim of cyber crime? If so, what happened?
- How can victims and witnesses be better supported?
- What is your experience of your local Police Community Support Officers?
- How can we open up opportunities for young people around education, employment and training?
- How much extra people would be prepared to pay for policing next year?
A link to the online survey was sent to all those who have contacted the OPCC or was accessed through the PCC website which was publicised through the press and on social media. 1,854 responses were received and are set out in the below report. Due to the method of collecting responses the views presented in this report are not representative of everyone's views but will provide a flavour of the issues and concerns people have within our communities here in West Yorkshire.
