"I published my first Police and Crime Plan shortly after my election. Now, two years into my term in office, I have carried out a review of that Plan to ensure my objectives still reflect the needs of Norfolk’s communities, to take account of new and emerging issues for crime and policing and to provide more information on my commissioning responsibilities. My refreshed plan continues to focus on those areas which you said are important to you. You told me during my review that my core priorities for Norfolk are still the right ones so they remain unchanged."
Your PCC’s ultimate goal is to keep Norfolk safe and secure for all of the people who live, work and visit here. The three objectives below set out a clear focus for Norfolk’s PCC and Deputy PCC Jenny McKibben, as well as for police and other agencies involved in tackling crime and disorder and delivering criminal justice.
Your PCC’s Police and Crime Plan makes it clear that these objectives cannot and should not be delivered by any one organisation in isolation. Achieving shared aims needs to be a partnership effort, involving statutory agencies, local groups, organisations and communities.
One of the key agencies with whom the PCC works to deliver his Crime and Disorder Reduction Objectives is Norfolk Police.
The PCC has set Chief Constable Simon Bailey a number of objectives specific to the policing of our county to ensure the issues which matter most to Norfolk are priorities for the Force.
41 Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) were elected across England and Wales on the 15 November 2012. When the elected PCCs took office on the 22 November 2012 they became responsible for a combined budget of £8 billion.
PCCs aim to cut crime and deliver an effective and efficient police service within their force area. Their role is to be the voice of the people and hold the police to account, effectively making them answerable to the communities they serve.
