Ormskirk Advertiser - - Active -

CLIVE GRUNSHAW said that he has con­tin­ued to scru­ti­nise the work of Lan­cashire po­lice, sup­port­ing and chal­leng­ing to make sure they are do­ing ev­ery­thing they can to keep peo­ple safe and tackle crime.

Reg­u­lar meet­ings with the Chief Con­sta­ble and other se­nior lead­ers in the force and the Po­lice and Crime Com­mis­sioner’s of­fice is a key part of hold­ing the force to ac­count against the Po­lice and Crime Plan, with meet­ings on­line dur­ing the lock­down.

Top­ics in­cluded the on­go­ing re­sponse in re­la­tion to coro­n­avirus and work­ing with the pub­lic on the rules and reg­u­la­tions, the 101 ser­vice and in­creased num­ber of crimes be­ing re­ported on­line and the peace­ful protests in the county in re­la­tion to the Black Lives Mat­ter move­ment.

Mr Grunshaw said: “As the pub­lic’s voice in polic­ing it is re­ally im­por­tant to me that I raise is­sues that are im­por­tant to peo­ple and en­sure that polic­ing in Lan­cashire is de­liv­er­ing the ef­fi­cient, ef­fec­tive ser­vice that the pub­lic ex­pect and de­serve.

“Af­ter once again been named as out­stand­ing when it comes to the way we use the re­sources at our dis­posal, it is cru­cial that we con­tinue to main­tain this high qual­ity of ser­vice and the high stan­dards of ser­vice that we have built here in Lan­cashire.

“The way the ser­vice has risen to the unique chal­lenges brought by the pan­demic, adapt­ing the work that they do while still en­sur­ing that day to day polic­ing con­tin­ued to keep peo­ple safe and take crim­i­nals off our streets, has been hugely im­pres­sive and I will con­tinue to act as a crit­i­cal friend to the force as we all work to­gether to de­liver for Lan­cashire.”
