Share concerns to shape policing
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.”
