Police Scotland wants to hear from the public about how to shape the service that they provide.
In 2017 Police Scotland agreed on a ten-year strategy for how they want to build a sustainable service able to adapt to the needs of a changing Scotland. Since then, they have been planning for and delivering change, whilst continuing to provide the local and specialist services that keep people safe.
Police Scotland said
Each year we are required to publish an Annual Police Plan which sets out our operational priorities for the year ahead.
This year we will enhance that by bringing together the work we do locally and nationally across all our operational and support functions and with our transformational activity, into one plan covering the next three years. This will show how all the parts of the service come together to make a positive impact for policing and society, and to keep people safe across Scotland against a set of strategic outcomes.
We will continue to focus our resources on the issues that cause the most harm in order to improve outcomes for people and communities. Our planning is informed by our analysis and assessment of the threat and risk posed and what we are told through our Your View Counts survey.
As part of our ongoing engagement, we are looking for opinions from people across Scotland on our proposed outcomes, our approach, and how you want to be involved in working with us to continue to shape future services.
We are also keen to hear your views to help shape our future strategies in respect to prevention and public contact and engagement.
Your opinions will help us to make sure that our plan fits with expectations and enables continued collaboration, and that we identify any areas of the plan that require to be amended or strengthened.
Our plan will be laid before the Scottish Parliament by the end of March 2019.
