Commissioner publishes his Police and Crime Plan
Police and Crime Commissioner for Humberside Jonathan Evison has published his Police and Crime Plan, the strategic document which sets out the objectives for his term of office over the next three years and how he will work with the police and other partners to achieve them. The Chief Constable of Humberside Police must have regard to the aims of the Plan when planning the operational aims of the force.
The Plan was developed after wide consultation since the Commissioner was elected in May with the public, elected representatives and numerous organisations in the community. In developing the Plan the Commissioner has also taken into account other organisations’ plans, Government policy and the latest data about the local area.
The Police and Crime Plan contains several key aims, including:
- Progressing the resources available for tackling crime in rural, coastal and urban areas.
- Increasing the number of police officers and improving their visibility.
- Enhancing crime reporting systems and the way we communicate, listening to our communities.
- Improving educational and diversionary activities to stop more young people falling into crime.
The Plan also outlines a roadmap over the next three years showing the actions that will be delivered by the Commissioner’s Office.
Jonathan Evison said: “When I was elected in May to be your local representative on policing and community safety, I pledged to engage more with local communities, rural, coastal and urban. I have a strong sense of purpose and desire to improve people’s lives and I want to be as effective as I can.
“After I took office I launched a consultation to find out the public’s priorities to make our communities safer. Drug use and dealing, anti-social behaviour, protecting vulnerable people and preventing violence against women and girls featured strongly in the responses and form part of my commitments that my office will deliver on.
“Part of my role is to hold Humberside Police to account for their performance on behalf of the public. The force have made great improvements in recent years under Chief Constable Lee Freeman, were rated ‘good’ in all areas by Her Majesty’s Inspectors and have an aim to achieve an ‘outstanding’ rating. I will both support and challenge the Chief Constable to achieve that aim and for Humberside Police to deliver the best service possible to our residents.
“The Plan I have set will require a great deal of hard work and determination, but I am confident that together we can rise to the challenge and make great progress for our communities.”
