#TellTracy - Final week to complete the Police and Crime Plan survey

What do you want West Yorkshire Police and local community safety organisations to focus on?

That’s the question posed by Tracy Brabin, the Mayor of West Yorkshire, and her Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime, Alison Lowe, as they urge everyone across the county to tell them their policing and community safety priorities.

A survey was launched in September which will inform the Mayor’s upcoming Police and Crime Plan, a crucial document which sets the strategic direction for West Yorkshire Police, community safety partners and commissioned services.

You can have your say and complete the survey in English here https://wh.snapsurveys.com/s.asp?k=163042341519 and it is also available in Polish, Punjabi, Arabic, Urdu, and Slovak from https://www.yourvoice.westyorks-ca.gov.uk/police-and-crime-plan-consultation

The survey closes for responses on Sunday, 29th October, and forms part of a wider #TellTracy consultation on the policing plan which is running until 19th November.

Tracy said: “We’ve had a fantastic response to the survey so far but as we enter the final week, I would like everyone to get involved because I want this to be the most representative and inclusive Police and Crime Plan in the country!

“I want to reassure women and girls across West Yorkshire that my pledge to put your safety at the heart of the policing plan will absolutely be kept along with other key principles such as diversity, equality and inclusion, early intervention and prevention.

“The survey is one part of my consultation which aims to capture a wide array of feedback and views. There are other ways to get involved, online and offline, up to the final closing date of 19th November, so please do get in touch.”

Alison, added: “It’s not every day that you have the opportunity to help shape a document that sets the strategic direction for the police and community safety partners – and I would urge everyone to get involved.

“I’m proud of the work we’ve done to make the consultation and survey as accessible as possible, it’s available in English and 5 additional languages, and you can also submit your views via email or over the phone if you prefer.”
