I hope you enjoy the September edition of my monthly report.
As you know, providing an effective link between the public and the police is a key for me as police and crime commissioner.
This newsletter is one of the ways in which we engage with the public – we send it to over 3,000 people every month.
But the main focus of our engagement is getting out and about talking to people face to face – this year the team have been busier than ever before – attending over 50 events between April and September.
During that period we have been asking people how they go about finding out what their local police team is up to.
A total of 1,308 people joined in and the top three methods they used were face to face (377), social media (355), asking neighbours or friends (188).
This shows that while use of digital engagement is important, people still want to be able to speak to the police when they need to.
If you have an event you would like me or someone from my team to attend please let us now by emailing us at opccengagement@
