Please tell us why you think these are the right or wrong areas of focus?
It identifies five areas of focus but despite all the fancy words does not actually say what we are going to do !!! Where are we getting the money?

I agree with this but no detail how we will achieve this? With no additional funding and potential loss of officers I doubt anything will change by 2026.

Clear & Understandable

6. Is the strategy presented in a clear and understandable way?

Yes
Ticked No
We would welcome any views you have.
The same information has been rehashed in a slightly different format on each page. The document states we are going to make a lot of changes but doesn't say what these changes will be or how they will be achieved. For example, given the catastrophic failure of i6, what new IT systems are we going to get that will help improve the outdated systems already in use?

Other views

7. We would welcome any additional views you have on our strategy and how it will affect you, or any other person.

We would welcome any views you have.
I have no idea how it will affect me or any partner agency because the report doesn't provide any level of detail to understand exactly what the 2026 project will deliver if anything.
