The Police and Crime Commissioner for Humberside has launched a consultation in a bid to gather public views about policing and crime in the region.

After he was re-elected to the role in May, PCC Jonathan Evison has opened the online consultation to collect information on Policing and Community Safety from the various communities throughout Humberside.

Contributing to the Commissioner's Police and Crime Plan - which will set out Mr Evison's priorities to reduce crime and improve community safety - the survey will ask about residents' priorities for police to tackle, their perception of crime levels where they live and their levels of confidence in Humberside Police.

Jonathan Evison said: “I was delighted to have been re-elected in May to continue being the public’s representative on policing and community safety. In my previous term we have been working hard to increase feelings of safety and improve public confidence in policing, but there is much more to do.

"It is my job to work on behalf of the public to ensure Humberside Police provide an effective and efficient police force and both support and hold the Chief Constable to account for their performance.

"My office also commissions other services to improve community safety and support victims of crime In this term, I want to engage even more with our local communities, rural, coastal and urban, to understand their views on policing and community safety and what they would like to see in my new Police and Crime Plan which I’ll publish in the Autumn.

"This is your opportunity to help shape the work of our office and that of our partners for the next four years. I'd like our residents, partners and businesses to contribute towards its development. The survey will take around ten minutes to complete and I look forward to hearing all views."

The key areas the Commissioner is asking about are:

• Residents’ top five priorities for the Police and other agencies to tackle

• How people would like to engage with the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner

• Perception of crime levels and experiences of reporting crime

• Levels of confidence in Humberside Police

The survey closes at midnight on Sunday, July 28. The survey can be taken by clicking here.
