West Yorkshire hosts the Regional Organised Crime Unit, the NE Counter Terrorism Unit, and the National Police Air Service. Consequently, we play an important role in the response to major threats to public safety. PCCs and Chief Constables have a responsibility to make sure that their police service can respond to national and international threats by having due regard for the Strategic Policing Requirement. These threats include terrorism, major cyber incidents, civil emergencies, organised crime, CSE/A and other emerging threats. I will work with West Yorkshire Police and other organisations to ensure that we collectively keep our region and country safe by making sure strategic threat assessments are kept under review.
Major Threats Priority Plan
So that we can all understand more about what we are doing together and want to do together to deliver on our priority areas of work we have developed our 'Priority Plans'.
These plans will be refreshed and renewed and are work in progress but we will report on our delivery against these Priority Plans in public facing Community Outcomes Meetings.
We want to demonstrate the difference we are making in our communities but we also want to know what else we could be doing to keep people in West Yorkshire safe and feeling safe.
