Police and Crime Plan 2021-2024 – Consultation
The West Yorkshire Police and Crime Plan is created and published by the Mayor of West Yorkshire, Tracy Brabin.
Under the Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act 2011, the Mayor must produce a Police and Crime Plan which sets out the strategic policing and crime priorities for West Yorkshire, and how she plans to meet them. The plan also has a requirement to set out the objectives and priorities of the work and activity of West Yorkshire Police and the Chief Constable for the next three years, and how the Mayor will hold the Chief Constable to account in delivering these objectives.
The new Plan will draw on a wide range of information to ensure it reflects the policing and crime issues which are affecting West Yorkshire, and listening to the opinions of West Yorkshire's residents and communities is a key part of the Plan’s development.
It is important that all our communities and partners have their say, and this includes the views of women and girls and victims of crime.
Your views and the information collected will be used to ensure the Mayor, along with her Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime, Alison Lowe, is focusing activity and funding on the areas of greatest need and of greatest concern to the people of West Yorkshire.
There are number of different ways in which you can engage with us including an online survey, in person and over the phone, with a full list of options below.
The consultation will run until 19th November with the online survey closing for responses on 17th October.
