Mark Burns-Williamson, West Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner speaking about the launch of the new Police and Crime Plan.
The Plan sets the outcomes, and priorities that will drive the work of my office, West Yorkshire Police and their partnership working over the next 5 years.
Hello I’m Mark Burns-Williamson, West Yorkshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner.
I am launching my new Police and Crime Plan for West Yorkshire which sets the outcomes and priorities that will drive the work of the my office, West Yorkshire Police and our partnership working over the next 5 years.
The outcomes are, tackle crime and anti-social behaviour, safeguard vulnerable people, make sure criminal justice works for all our communities and support victims and witnesses.
This new Plan takes over from the previous Police and Crime Plan and was created following an extensive consultation.
It is the largest consultation the office has ever carried out with the public, partners and the police around policing priorities and community safety.
New additions to the Plan include priorities on safeguarding missing people and reducing incidents through addressing the root causes, working together to prevent radicalisation and safeguard people that are vulnerable to being groomed, and increasing community cohesion by encouraging inclusivity and building relationships between our communities.
Many existing priorities from the previous Plan, which continue to be important to the people of West Yorkshire, do remain. These priorities include tackling child sexual exploitation, domestic abuse, road safety, cyber crime, human trafficking and providing the best possible support to the victims of crime.
I have launched the Police and Crime Plan 2016-2021 with the shared vision of keeping West Yorkshire safe and feeling safe. It sets out what outcomes we are going to deliver, how we are going to deliver them and how we - and importantly you - are going to know that we have delivered.
