As the Commissioner, one of my key responsibilities will be to ensure that the public’s views and priorities are the driving force behind policing and are supportive of community safety and the criminal justice system.  As such, I  will ensure that Gwent Police are more focused than ever on those areas which will help achieve the outcomes that mean the most to you.  The priorities within this plan have been informed by a wide range of internal and external research, engagement and consultation to ensure that the organisation is focused on the right issues.

The priorities have been chosen following extensive consideration of factors including:

  • Victim and Community consultation - surveys, neighbourhood meetings, Partners and Communities Together (PACT) priorities.
  • Performance Information – Detection rates, public confidence, satisfaction of victims and witnesses
  • Crime and Anti-Social Behaviour rates of recording
  • Force intelligence and analysis
  • Strategic partner consultation
  • Local and Regional Strategic Assessments of the Strategic Policing Requirement and Protective Services
  • My pre-election Manifesto commitments
  • Inspections conducted by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary.
