Lets talk about Policing in Lancashire – Policing is everyones business17 July, 2015
So far a number of events have been planned with more in the pipeline. The aim is to meet and talk to as many residents as possible to discuss changing crime and how it may be affecting them and their local area.
Clive said: “Policing is everyone’s business and I want people to feel confident that they can come and talk to me about their views and issues and I will listen and respond.
“I first drew up my police and crime plan six months after I was elected to the role and have regularly asked residents their views to ensure it remains fit for purpose. However there is no doubt that the pressures on the service as a result of changes to our funding and the changing nature of crime means the Constabulary is finding new ways of working and I want to engage with people about the service they expect and need, but also about their priorities and their thoughts about how the police are funded in the future.”
