Police and Crime Plans focus on local priorities to fight crime


Responding to the BBC report that Police and Crime Commissioners are introducing new perfomance targets for the police, Tony Lloyd, Greater Manchester Police and Crime Commissioner and Chairman of the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners, said:

“Police and Crime Commissioners were elected by the public to hold forces to account. We work closely with our local communities to identify what most concerns them about crime. Police and Crime Plan objectives bear no resemblance to previous central government targets. Police and Crime Commissioners put their draft five year plans out for public consultation and used the comments they received back to shape local priorities to fight crime. Police and Crime Plans are designed to reflect the views of local people and not constrain police officers from cutting crime.”
