Sound financial management and governance has provided an opportunity to consider extra investment inharm reduction and prevention.
These measures would be part of a package of enhancements to the Neighbourhood Policing model.
A range of proposals (as set out in the business case) have been developed for consideration by the Police and Crime Commissioner.
This is part of a strategy to deliver significantly better outcomes for communities, particularly those who face the highest levels of risk of harm, crime and anti social behaviour.
In summary the proposal will deliver:
- Police Officers increase by seven
- Police Community Support Officers increase by 23
- Police staff roles increase by 10
