To help gather views I’ve launched a new survey designed to let you have a say on the big issues facing our region, and how Northumbria Police should respond them.

This survey will be used to ensure my Police and Crime Plan, the strategic plan for policing in your area, remains up to date and relevant.

The existing plan was written in 2021 and I committed then to refreshing it every year. Below you will find a few questions asking your opinion on the priorities the public agreed at the start of this process, as well as some questions on public safety overall.

Your answers will help shape local policing and set out how I hold the force to account on your behalf. The consultation will close on Sunday 29th January.
