Thousands of people respond to the Police and Crime Plan consultation (26 Jul 2016)

026 - 13-Jul -2016West Yorkshire's Police and Crime Commissioner, Mark Burns-Williamson, has received thousands of responses to his consultation to inform the development of the new Police and Crime Plan 2016-21.

The 'Your Priorities, Your Plan' consultation launched in May this year and involved an online and paper survey on policing and community safety priorities, and also saw Mark spending time in each of the districts in West Yorkshire consulting with local people, partners and the police.

Mark spent days in Bradford, Calderdale, Kirklees, Leeds and Wakefield and held meetings in community centres and public places to speak to local people, partners and the police as well as visiting charity, partner and volunteer projects.

Over 4000 people individually completed the survey with many more giving their priorities in person and through social media. Consultation with partners such as Councils, Voluntary Sector and many other organisations is still on-going representing thousands more, including West Yorkshire Police.

The online and paper survey element of the consultation closed for responses on Friday 22 July.

Mark Burns-Williamson said "I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone that contributed to the 'Your Priorities, Your Plan' consultation which has been one of the biggest I've ever carried out.


"I launched the consultation to understand what matters to our communities here in West Yorkshire and these priorities will be reflected in the new Police and Crime Plan which is the most important document I produce.

"The new Plan will be launched in autumn and will set the direction for policing and community safety over the next five years.

"Anyone that didn't get chance to complete the survey can still contact my office with their priorities via email to [email protected], by telephone 01924 294000 or for more options visit www.westyorkshire-pcc.gov.uk/contact-us.aspx."
