Risks

1. Does the Policing 2026 strategy identify and acknowledge the main risks, challenges, opportunities and demands likely to impact on policing over the next 10 years?

Not sure
We would welcome any view you have.
Reducing numbers of officers, who are already overstretched and stressed to breaking point can never be a good thing. Policing is about the face to face presence of officers and their ability to get to the public quickly in an emergency. The destruction of the British police as a whole is a tragedy. We should be paying them more and recruiting more not devaluing them and reducing numbers.

Please tell us why you think these are the right or wrong areas of focus?
Using a word like inequality is just politics it's meaning less. Crime generally is the same as are peoples worries, being able to move around safely, not have your things stolen or your home broken into.

Reducing officers when they are on there knees through cuts is just insanity and in no way can be good for the public

Policing is about dealing with people doing wrong, the people doing wrong won't be satisfied they got caught and victims often blame police for courts poor treatment of offenders so public confidence is not a good judge of effective policing

Workforce

5. The Policing 2026 strategy highlights that we will need to re-shape our organisation with a workforce focussed on having the right skills and capacity to meet future challenges. Do you agree with this approach?

Sworn police officers not specials are true professionals (or were) before the pension and wage attacks and changes in recruitment. You don't need to change what is working best, officers are the police not the bosses or civilians, the officers dealing at the coal face are the police they are all that matter

Clear & Understandable

It's just a corporate political money saving plan, with no credibility or honesty in its intention

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.
Chief Constance's should stand up to the political destruction of British police as a whole instead of just considering their careers and plaquating a government he'll bend on destroying policing, so they can privatise and make personal profit. None of this benefits the public or the country, or Scotland
