We Asked

The 2018/19 Annual Police Plan (APP) sets out our priorities for policing and explains how we will deliver them over the forthcoming year. It offers a significant opportunity to improve how we serve the public and our communities.

We engaged with the public and partners to develop the final plan. Through this survey, we asked for views on our planned activities for the 2018/19 period. These related to the following priorities: Violence, Disorder and Antisocial Behaviour; Serious Organised Crime; Counter Terrorism; Protecting People at Risk of Harm; Road Safety and Road Crime; Acquisitive Crime.

We also welcomed any other comments.

You Said

The six week engagement period resulted in a total of 1102 responses from a wide range of partner agencies/organisations, as well as individual members of the public. The level of response, over the 6 six week period, compared favourably to other similar surveys or consultations run in recent years in Scotland.

These figures represent a strong level of support for the approaches set out within the APP and this provides Police Scotland with the assurance that these approaches have the support and confidence of the public and partners.

We Did

All responses have been reviewed and considered as the final version of the APP was developed. The detailed responses have also been shared with internal divisions and departments to enable further local engagement and continuous improvement.

The APP was laid before Parliament on 29 March 2018 and published on the Police Scotland website. A report with more details of the survey is available below.

Overview

The 2018/19 Annual Police Plan will set out our priorities for policing and explain how we will deliver them over the forthcoming year. The Annual Police Plan offers a significant opportunity to improve how we serve the public and our communities.

The Police & Fire Reform (Scotland) Act 2012 requires Police Scotland to produce an annual plan outlining the arrangements for the policing of Scotland. This plan is laid before the Scottish Parliament prior to the 1st April each year, and is also published online for the public to view.

Our operational priorities are shaped by listening to what the public and communities have to tell us via our 'Your View Counts' survey*, as well as our own analysis of the risks and emerging threats likely to impact on Scotland’s communities.

We are keen to engage with the public and partners as we develop the 2018/19 Annual Police Plan, therefore the following survey has seven questions regarding our planned activities for the 2018/19 period. This includes extracts taken from the draft plan and we are keen to capture your feedback to help us develop the final version.

Thank you for your time in completing this survey.
