Ahead of setting next year’s policing budget, the PCC wanted to seek the views of communities across Herefordshire, Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin and Worcestershire in a public survey.
With the Covid pandemic placing an impact on the economy, and wider public finances, there are greater uncertainties than usual as we head towards next year’s policing budget. Therefore, the PCC wanted to ensure that, when it comes to it, the public’s views are at the heart of his decision making.
The survey asked people about their priorities, what it’s like in their community from a policing perspective, and in which areas of policing would they choose to spend more or less money.
The survey ran from Monday 5th October to Monday 2nd November, and the results will be available soon.
