Less crime, more peace and good order

Police and Crime Plan Priorities & Commitments

The OPCC exists to make sure that policing is accessible and accountable to the people of Gloucestershire and that residents have an opportunity to shape policing priorities.

Six priorities and two commitments form the basis of the Police and Crime Plan, which is our commitment to building safer communities. Working with partners and communities, we will make Gloucestershire a safer place to live, work and visit.

Accessibility and accountability

This priority is about getting the right resources to the right situation the first time, every time, on time and dealing with the matter appropriately and effectively.

No one overlooked

This priority is about our commitment to older people, whether they live in their own homes, with family or are in residential care. We want older people to feel and remain an active part of our communities here in Gloucestershire.

Young people becoming adults

We need sensitive, relevant and effective policing to ensure our young people become law-abiding, productive members of society. The ‘system’ must work for them, not against them.

Safer days and nights for all

Gloucestershire has a strong night-time economy, but we need to reduce alcohol-related crime and disorder so that everyone can enjoy our parks, pubs and streets without fear.

Safer Gloucestershire

Safer Gloucestershire is a body developed to enhance public safety in Gloucestershire. It calls on the expertise and leadership of senior managers from a range of agencies across the county. Their job is to anticipate potentially dangerous or harmful situations and plan solutions should they arise.

The Commissioner’s Fund

Here in Gloucestershire, PCC Martin Surl allocates 1% of the overall policing budget to the Commissioner’s Fund, which supports county-based projects that deliver one or more of our priorities. Our aim is to work directly with communities to make Gloucestershire safer.
