Wiltshire’s PCC Philip Wilkinson has launched a public survey and consultation – and wants to hear from you in your capacity as a councillor.
Part of the PCC’s role is to produce a Police and Crime Plan for the county. It’s a blueprint for the strategic policing and crime priorities for the next three years.
As this current plan comes to an end by March 2022, the new Plan will start immediately afterwards.
It sets out how the PCC’s pledges and priorities will be delivered throughout Wiltshire but more importantly it should reflect the needs and priorities of all our communities too.
So this is where YOU come in.
The PCC is asking you to Use Your Voice and help him to make Wiltshire safer for all - encourage residents to fill in the online survey, fill it in yourself on behalf of a group or charity you represent, or on behalf of your community's constituents.
Make sure to tell us how many people you are representing so the correct weighting can be given to your responses.
It is vital that all parts of our communities’ voices are heard.
What you say will directly influence Wiltshire Police’s priorities, objectives and activities. The new Police and Crime Plan will ensure both the force and the PCC’s office are working towards the same goals in a joined-up, co-ordinated, approach.
It also will be the way the PCC holds the Chief Constable to account for delivering these priorities – your priorities.
Remember, if it matters to you, it matters. Use your experience to help make Wiltshire safer.

Other ways to get involved
After the plan has been drafted, the PCC will be holding debates and discussions at numerous events and stakeholder group meetings. He will be looking for your feedback.
We will update all events on the Use Your Voice website page once definite dates have been arranged. This will be during December and January before the final draft is presented to the Police and Crime Panel in February.
You will also be able to download the draft Police and Crime Plan, once produced, from the website and provide your feedback and comments to us.
Here’s the timeline
The first part of the PCC’s Police and Crime Plan development is centred around a public survey which aims to be as wide-reaching and diverse as the community he represents.
This is open for four weeks until November 14th and there will be a variety of ways you can get involved throughout the process below.
Thanks - we can't wait to hear from you!
