Local people across County Durham and Darlington are invited to give their views on a new plan launched today.

This week marks the mid-point in Ron Hogg’s second term of office as Police, Crime and Victims’ Commissioner. Ron has taken the opportunity to refresh his Police, Crime and Victims Plan – the key document which sets out his aims and priorities to reduce crime and improve the safety of local communities.

Commenting on the new draft Plan, Ron said: “I want levels of crime to fall, and for local people to feel safe. It is also important that victims of crime and vulnerable people feel supported so that they can cope and recover from their experience; and re-offenders should be rehabilitated into society where appropriate, so that re-offending is reduced. I believe that these factors will help people to have confidence in policing and the criminal justice system.”

Ron added: “My new plan highlights a series of priorities which I intend that Durham Constabulary, and our partner organisations in the criminal justice system, take into account when delivering their services. I will hold them to account and publish progress reports on my website every quarter.”

Local people are invited to submit their comments to Ron email to general.enquiries@durham.pcc.pnn.gov.uk by Monday 28 May 2018.
