Share con­cerns to shape polic­ing

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your Telegraph -

RES­I­DENTS of Peter­bor­ough are be­ing given the chance to dis­cuss crime and com­mu­nity safety con­cerns as part of a Face the Peo­ple con­sul­ta­tion.

Heads of or­gan­i­sa­tions from the Safer­Peter­bor­ough part­ner­ship, in­clud­ing the po­lice, fire, Peter­bor­ough City Coun­cil, the pro­ba­tion ser­vice and other lo­cal groups, will be at Cen­tral Park in Peter­bor­ough, on Satur­day from noon un­til 5pm.

The con­sul­ta­tion will de­ter­mine what peo­ple would like to see im­proved in their commu- ni­ties and what pri­or­i­ties they think the part­ner­ship should fo­cus on.

Peo­ple can talk to de­ci­sion mak­ers from the Safer­Peter­bor­ough part­ner­ship and col­lect in­for­ma­tion about the part­ner­ship plan and its pri­or­ity ar­eas from a des­ig­nated mar­quee at the Peter­bor­ough Fes­ti­val.

Re­sults will be used to help shape the part­ner­ship’s nine main pri­or­i­ties, which in­clude se­ri­ous ac­quis­i­tive crime, an­ti­so­cial be­hav­iour, do­mes­tic abuse, vi­o­lent crime, sex­ual of­fences, road safety, sub­stance mis­use, ar­son and hate crime.

Com­mu­nity safety strat­egy man­ager Gary Goose said: “Meet­ing mem­bers of the pub­lic in this way al­lows us to lis­ten to any con­cerns they may have about crime and com­mu­nity safety where they live.

“Re­sults will al­low us to re­spond to is­sues that are of great­est con­cern to the pub­lic.

He added: “This helps us to achieve our aim to cre­ate con­fi­dent, safer and stronger com­mu­ni­ties.”
