Currently, Gwent Police Authority is required to ensure that all people living in the Gwent area have an efficient, effective and improving police service. The Authority sets the police budget, appoints the Chief Constable, determines policing objectives, and holds the Chief Constable to account for providing an efficient and effective force. The Chief Constable is responsible for operational matters.
From November 2012, however, a Police and Crime Commissioner will assume the role of the Police Authority in carrying out this important governance function.
To inform our policing priority discussions, it is important that the people of Gwent have an opportunity to tell us what their policing needs are. This is achieved through a number of activities, one of which is this electronic survey, ‘Your Voice Counts’.
To take our survey, please follow the link http://bit.ly/yourvoicecounts2012.
The results of this survey will be used as part of the annual policing priority process and will inform the 2013/2014 Police and Crime Plan. The results will be available via the Police Authority website during the Autumn 2012.
Please note: the draft policing priorities provided here are quite ‘high level’ in the way they are described; however, more localised policing activity has been considered when producing them.
I am happy to discuss any questions or queries you may have; please contact me by e-mail or telephone as below.
