Mark Burns Williamson to launch Police and Crime Plan (27 March 2013)

Today Mark Burns-Williamson will launch his Police and Crime Plan for the next five years to set out his vision for policing and community safety and to make sure everyone across West Yorkshire is safer and feels safer.

This morning (Wednesday) the plan will be launched being sent by e-mail, discussed on Twitter (#wypcp) and on the Commissioner's Facebook page reaching initially tens of thousands of people across West Yorkshire who have taken part in his 'Listening to you' survey, met Mark since he was elected or are in touch with their local Neighbourhood Police Team. The people of West Yorkshire will be the first to read a plan that now reflects their priorities and concerns raised in the 'Listening to you first' consultation. 

The plan focuses on key issues, including a target to reduce levels of burglary compared to other similar police forces and local areas, tackle serious and violent crime like domestic violence, rape and child sexual exploitation and work to change minds over problems such as hate crime. Whether it be ensuring people work together to tackle Anti Social Behaviour your street, or ensuring that all those responsible for helping them always put the victims of crime first, the plan commits Mark to work with partners to make you, your family and neighbours safer, and feel safer.

Mark Burns-Williamson, Police and Crime Commissioner said:

"This Plan reflects my beliefs and values.It builds on the pledges made to you and the concerns you raised with me during the election campaign but importantly is strongly influenced by and seeks to properly reflect what is happening where you live and what you care about, as people told me clearly in my Listening to You First consultation."

"I want to make a real difference to people's lives across West Yorkshire.I passionately believe in a fair and equal society where all people across the county can have confidence in all those delivering policing and community safety. I will drive forward with partners the change needed to make sure people are safer and feel safer in our communities."
