Durham and Darlington police commissioner sets out crime plan
A NORTH-EAST police and crime commissioner is encouraging people to have their say on his vision for policing over the next five years.
Ron Hogg has set out his objectives for County Durham and Darlington and said he will hold Durham Police chief constable Mike Barton to account for police performance over the coming years.
He said: “My draft police and crime plan reflects my vision for policing County Durham and Darlington. During December and January I asked the public to tell me their top policing priorities for the coming year, which I have incorporated into my plan.
“I hope that residents and partner organisations take the opportunity to view the draft plan and feedback any comments or concerns.”
The plan will be formally presented to the Police and Crime Panel, which scrutinises the work of the commissioner, on March 5.
Mr Hogg is also consulting on his draft equality action plan, which he plans to launch at the same time as his police and crime plan, on April 1.
Consultation for both plans ends on Friday, March 8. Visit durham-pcc.gov.uk, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0191-3835511 for more details.
