Commissioner publishes his first policing plan

Friday, 5th April 2013.

Tim Passmore, the Police and Crime Commissioner for Suffolk, has published his first Police and Crime Plan and Performance Framework, after several months of consultation with the public across the county.

The plan clearly sets out his priorities for local policing for Suffolk and how he plans to address these priorities.

It is Mr Passmore’s first opportunity, since his election, to set out his objectives for policing and reducing crime and disorder in the county and how policing resources will be allocated.

Launching his plan, he said: “Over the coming years I want to really focus on making Suffolk a safer place in which to live, work, travel and invest, and my Police and Crime Plan reflects this ambition.

"Good policing is key to improving life for residents and visitors alike. I want to instil a strong respect for law and order and will keep the needs of the victims of crime at the heart of all that we do.

“Since taking office in November I have met and listened to a wide range of the community to understand their concerns and expectations. This feedback has been vital as I have devised my Police and Crime Plan.

“We received over 100 considered responses to the plan and I would like to publicly thank everyone who participated in the consultation; I will respond personally as soon as I can.

"I believe we all have a part to play in making Suffolk a safe, vibrant and thriving community and I am heartened by the response that I have received.

“Although it is the Police and Crime Commissioner’s plan, I am proud it is very much a team effort, involving the Chief Constable, all my partners and colleagues from the voluntary and community sector.

"It has been drafted to include the views of representatives groups from the community; it is a public document and a key mechanism for me to hold the Chief Constable to account and ensure the broader community safety objectives are delivered.”

Douglas Paxton, the new Chief Constable, said: “I am delighted to have worked with Tim on his first Police and Crime Plan for Suffolk.

“The plan gives the constabulary the clarity we need to take the PCC’s vision forward over the next four years and gives the public a clear picture of the PCC’s objectives to make the county an even safer place.

"I support Tim’s optimism for Suffolk and thank him for his confidence in the constabulary to deliver this plan.”
