South Holland public invited to take part in new policing survey

People in South Holland can have their say on how the area is policed in a countywide survey.

Marc Jones, Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) for Lincolnshire, is asking for the public’s views on how police income raised through council tax bills should be spent.

The results from past surveys have led to the launch of Community Speed Watch where trained volunteers monitor drivers passing through 30mph and 40mph areas in towns and villages.

Mr Jones, who will be standing for re-election in May 2020, said: "This year’s survey will continue to guide priorities on where investment should be made.

"The response in previous years has been phenomenal and the thousands who took part in the annual survey certainly played an important role in helping me shape the future of their police force.

"This year will be no different and those who engage with the survey can be confident that their opinions will be heard and acted upon."

More than 3,400 people across Lincolnshire took part in a similar survey last year, including nearly 350 from South Holland.

Other initiatives to come out of the survey were advanced and refresher driving courses for under-25s and over-60s respectively, new pursuit vehicles used by police officers when tackling organised crime and investment in current automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) technology in order to track down criminals.

Mr Jones said: "As PCC for Lincolnshire, I would encourage as many people as possible to ensure their voices are heard."
