We would welcome any views you have.
Communicating your vision will be key to its success. people still in many areas hang on to the old fashioned view of the police "There should be an officer on very corner!" Efficiency savings will only be realised when the force invests in appropriate technology which will be interesting in the current financial climate even though the 2026 vision states that this will be achievable. Hopefully lessons will have been learned from the disastrous i6 project which continues to draw comment across all media platforms, especially from retired officers. Project management requires constancy and I don not believe that this will be managed accordingly as staff development will always impact. This issue needs addressed. The service offered to the public in general meets the needs of those who don't directly need the police. It is when direct interaction is required: reporting a crime or incident that the level of service is dependant upon who attends. This cannot be allowed to continue - standards are poor, officers, through pressures of work, although not always, are not provided with the necessary tools to provide a quality service, and this includes time to conduct relevant enquiries to a conclusion. In many cases they are simply recording crime and conducting a minimal level of enquiries to show they covered the bases. The public don't want bases covered, they want evidence of commitment to resolve problems, communicates effort and the associated results and builds a community spirit through these efforts. People have come to expect nothing from the police which is a sad indictment on the level of service that is provided.
