Please tell us why you think these are the right or wrong areas of focus?
I live in an area of high unemployment, social deprivation, addiction and low level crime. Many of the residents have a very low opinion of the police, who search them for no apparent reason and are very disrespectful. One of my neighbours, aged 77 and with no criminal record, was locked in a cell for several hours for an alleged offence. She was found not guilty. But where was she going to run to? She wasn't drunk, under the influence of any substances and is not aggressive. I think restoring Community Police to the area would be a start. I appreciate that you have a difficult job and you are short staffed.
