Jo Cox MP is urging people in Batley & Spen to help compile West Yorkshire’s new police and crime plan.

Police and Crime Commissioner Mark Burns-Williamson was re-elected in May and has launched a new consultation to find out what matters to the public, police and their partners across the county.

The priorities fed back will inform the PCC’s plan for the next five years.

As part of the consultation, which involves a survey of local priorities, Mr Burns-Williamson will also visit communities to talk directly with local people over the coming months.

The new plan will be revealed in September and will list emerging and existing priorities.

Mrs Cox said: “The new Police and Crime Plan will set the direction for policing and community safety for the next five years. It is important that local people’s voices are heard and I hope they will take some time to fill in the survey and encourage family, friends and colleagues to do the same.

“The more feedback from people the more the commissioner and the police can understand what needs to be done to ensure local people and communities are safe and feel safe.”

A web chat is planned for June when people can log on and say matters most to them. For more information and to complete the survey visit the PCC’s website by clicking here. You can also request a survey by calling 01924 294000.
