“Your views and the information collected will be crucial, not only in setting priorities but also to ensure I am focusing activity and funding on the areas of greatest need to the people of West Yorkshire.

“The Plan will be underpinned by some key principles that sit at the core of everything that my Deputy for Policing and Crime, Alison Lowe, and I do. These are, safety for women and girls, diversity, equality and inclusion, and early intervention and prevention.”

The consultation will run until November 19 with the online survey closing for responses on October 17

Alison Lowe, Deputy Mayor for Police and Crime, said: “The Police and Crime Plan is a really important document, it is far from just words on pages. It directly informs the actions of those working to keep us safe, on the frontline and on our streets.

“This is a Plan for everyone and that means we need everyone to get involved. You have a voice, and we really want to hear it.”
