Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) Joy Allen, thanks all residents, partners, community, and voluntary sector organisations who took the time to provide feedback on the draft Police and Crime Plan for County Durham and Darlington.
The recent consultation collected responses from over 700 people across County Durham and Darlington, asking their views on the policing priorities identified in the plan.
The draft plan is now being developed following local partner and resident feedback from the consultation and public engagement events.
Joy Allen, Police and Crime Commissioner said: “Thank you to the hundreds of people across County Durham and Darlington who took their time to give feedback on my draft Police and Crime Plan.
“All feedback has been carefully considered when developing the plan as this plan needs to reflect the needs of the communities.
“Feedback from residents, the Constabulary and local partners has been used to develop a plan ready to present to the Police and Crime Panel later this month. Following review from the Panel the plan will be published later this year.”
College bars at Durham University have been praised by PCC for meeting strict standards of safety as part of a national accreditation scheme.
Four outstanding Community Peer Mentor volunteers have been invited to Royal celebration events to mark King Charles III’s Coronation.
PCC has praised the swift roll-out of a free security scheme helping former victims of crime and their neighbours to feel safer in their homes.
