Durham Commissioner launches first Police and Crime Plan
Ron Hogg, Durham’s Police and Crime Commissioner, has outlined his plans for the policing of County Durham and Darlington in his first ever Police and Crime Plan.
The Plan, which is effective until 2017, sets out Mr Hogg’s policing objectives for the force area and how he will hold the Chief Constable to account for police performance over the coming years.
Mr Hogg said: “My Police and Crime Plan reflects my vision for policing County Durham and Darlington. The police are there to protect everybody and therefore my Plan is being made available to as wide an audience as possible.
“I recently consulted partners and members of the public, including victims of crime, on my draft Plan and I am grateful to all those who responded. Some suggestions have been incorporated into the Plan whilst others will be helpful when I develop other strategies, such as my Communications and Engagement Strategy, over the coming months”.
Mr Hogg’s policing priorities, which he is tasking the Chief Constable to focus on, are:
Personal priorities as set out in his manifesto:
Community priorities voted for by the public:
to reduce the impact of domestic abuse, particularly violence against women and girls
to tackle anti-social behaviour
to reduce the impact of hate crime
to tackle the harm caused to individuals and communities by alcohol and drugs
to improve engagement with local communities across the Constabulary area
to improve road safety by tackling careless and dangerous driving, speeding and other related road safety issues

to make our policing services visible and accessible at all times
Mr Hogg has made his Plan available as a video, in leaflet format (large print also available) as well as a more detailed Plan for partner organisations. These can be viewed on his website at: www.durham-pcc.gov.uk as well as on YouTube, Twitter and Facebook.
