THE recently re-elected police and crime commissioner Sue Mountstevens is seeking the views of residents, community groups and businesses on the policing of Avon and Somerset.
Comments made will help shape and develop the next police and crime plan for the area.
Ms Mountstevens said vulnerability, strengthening and improving local policing teams were some of the areas she believed should be a priority.
But she said: “Everybody who makes up Avon and Somerset will have a view on what should be a policing priority in the area they live and work.
“Listening to local people is the most important part of my role and it’s only by hearing from them that I can truly be their voice in policing.
“Everyone has the right to be safe and feel safe in their community and I want local people to have the upmost confidence in the police.  This is their chance to tell me what is important to them.
The consultation closes on Tuesday, August 30.
People can get involved by going to the commissioner’s website or phoning 01275 816377. Copies of the consultation are also be available at police stations and libraries.
