Cheshire's Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) John Dwyer is asking local residents for their views on his new Police and Crime Plan, which sets out the priorities for policing and community safety in Cheshire.

The plan sets out the newly elected PCC's vision for policing. It also details the strategic priorities for Cheshire Constabulary over the next three years, as well as setting out how he'll hold the Chief Constable to account against these priorities.

The overarching priorities from now until 2024 are to:

  • Prevent and tackle crime
  • Make Cheshire's roads safer
  • Deliver justice for victims of crime
  • Protect vulnerable people
  • Improve public confidence in policing
  • Modernise our police force

The plan also includes a commitment to take police officer numbers in Cheshire to 2,345 – their highest level in modern times and to continue to invest in neighbourhood policing to ensure there is a visible policing presence in all local communities.

The Commissioner is now asking the public for their views on whether these priorities and commitments will make Cheshire even safer.
