Refreshed Police and Crime Plan Launched

I hope you are well and I wanted to share my refreshed Police and Crime Plan with you which I hope you will find informative.

The Plan sets the strategic direction for West Yorkshire Police and our community safety partners.

At the heart of the Plan is our ambition to work together with the police and partners, and with our communities, to help achieve our shared vision of ‘keeping West Yorkshire safe and feeling safe’.

Key additions in this refresh are updated priorities to reflect new approaches, and challenges, to tackling crime in West Yorkshire.

These include:

  • Emphasising the importance of safeguarding work, recognising the challenges and a continued priority of Child Sexual Abuse and Exploitation.
  • Citing ‘Serious Violence’ as a standalone priority for the first time.
  • Recognising the vital work undertaken by the now established West Yorkshire Violence Reduction Unit (VRU).
  • And building community resilience to help counter terrorism.

So please take a look, stay safe and best wishes.
