Po­lice Scot­land want your opinions

Rutherglen Reformer - - Election Special - Dou­glas Dickie

Po­lice Scot­land want to know what res­i­dents in Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang think their pri­or­i­ties should be for polic­ing in their com­mu­nity.

The or­gan­i­sa­tion has set up an on­line sur­vey look­ing for lo­cal views.

On their web­site, Po­lice Scot­land say: “The pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion is for you to tell us what is im­por­tant to you in your com­mu­nity. Your opin­ion is val­ued – we need your opin­ion to in­form our polic­ing.

“Hav­ing your say in the de­ci­sion mak­ing process of Po­lice Scot­land is a vi­tal tool for res­i­dents of Scot­land to be able to shape the way their pub­lic ser­vices should op­er­ate.

“Ev­ery­one’s views will be taken on board at a na­tional and lo­cal level.

“We want you to help us fo­cus on the pri­or­i­ties that will help com­mu­ni­ties most.

“There is no ‘one-size-fit­sall’ ap­proach to lo­cal polic­ing and all the needs and wants of in­di­vid­ual com­mu­ni­ties will be con­sid­ered.”

This is the first time Po­lice Scot­land’s pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion is be­ing hosted on a dig­i­tal plat­form.

The on­line con­sul­ta­tion is open all year.
