Police online poll for public

(adapted from a post on Tower Wharf Residents’ Association’s website)

Police Scotland is inviting people to tell them what they want from local policing via a new online survey.  The survey, which takes 15 minutes to complete, follows feedback from communities who want better opportunities to have their say.

Chief Constable Phil Gormley said, ‘Police Scotland wants to gather and understand views which reflect the needs of communities.’

The year-long survey went live yesterday at www.scotland.police.uk/yourviewcounts.

Go take, take 15 minutes and tell them what you think!

What are your priorities for the police service?

(adapted from a post on Leith Links CC’s website)

The Scottish Government is reviewing the Strategic Police Priorities set under the Police and Fire Reform (Scotland) Act 2012.

 The first stage of this review is a broad discussion centred around the question ‘What are your priorities for your police service?’: https://ideas.scotland.gov.uk/strategic-police-priorities. The consultation is open until 12 February 2016.

They want to hear from members of the public, communities, local police scrutiny committees, and all those involved in issues connected to policing in Scotland about what is important to you. As with most consultations, the more responses the better so please do share.
