Have your say on changes to police service

MEMBERS of the public are being given the chance to help shape the future of policing in Cambridgeshire using a new ‘have you say’ section on the force website.

Chief Constable Simon Parr said each week a new topic will be open for people to ask questions and make comments.

“The force faces a number of challenges over the next few years as we work to balance the books and ensure we make the best use of resources,” Mr Parr said. “Work is already underway to review the existing force structure to create a new policing model that provides the best possible service to the public.

“Our focus remains on frontline duties and a commitment to bringing offenders to justice and keeping people safe. Now the public can get involved in helping us achieve this by having their say about the changes being made to the force.

“We are very interested in people’s opinions and will be taking the responses into account as we redesign the force’s structure.”

All comments, questions and answers will be viewable and the forum will be live for at least the next three months.

The first topic will be the review of all non-frontline duties carried out by police officers. This includes managerial, analytical, training and call handling.
