Refreshed Police and Crime Plan launched by PCC
Durham Police and Crime Commissioner Ron Hogg has reviewed his Police and Crime Plan, which he made available to the public and partners from 1st April 2014.
Talking about his role and the review of his Plan, Ron said: "I take enormous pride in my role in representing the people of County Durham and Darlington. My first Police and Crime Plan set out the commitments I made in my manifesto.
"I have now been in office for over a year and feel that it is time to refresh this Police and Crime Plan and build upon those original commitments. This refreshed plan sets out my vision and commitments and the objectives which I believe will help to achieve this.
"My plan provides strategic direction for the Chief Constable, who has responsibility for day to day operational policing. A key responsibility of my role is to hold the Chief Constable to account for delivery of this plan on behalf of local people."
The Police and Crime Plan 2014-17 is available to view on Ron Hogg's website: Police and Crime Plan. The Plan is also available in large print, as a leaflet for residents and as a video on YouTube. Printed copies can be made available on request by calling 03000 264633.
"During my time in office good progress has been made towards the achievement of my priorities and I do not propose to change these for this refreshed plan" said Ron.
"I am thankful for the ongoing commitment of officers, staff and PCSOs alike. However, the police alone cannot fight crime. Therefore I am grateful to our partners and communities across County Durham and Darlington for working together in partnership to achieve our priorities and improve our communities. Together we can make a difference."
