Working together for a safer Gloucestershire

Police and Crime Prevention Plan Priorities

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 form the basis of the Police and Crime Prevention 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.

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.
