“It is my job to make sure that older and vulnerable people in our communities are valued and not disregarded. Our aim is to make people more confident, cared-for and connected, reducing fear of crime and the opportunity of being a victim.”
To achieve this priority, we are working with the network of organisations across Gloucestershire already committed to supporting older and vulnerable people. Our aim is to make people feel safe and more resilient to crime and the fear of crime.
Supported by funds from the OPCC, voluntary and community organisations are already making improvements, supporting dementia friendly communities, understanding cyber crime and continuing the work of the Neighbourhood Watch Association.
Our commitment also includes:
- Encouraging closer working between the voluntary sector and Police and Crime Plan partners
- Supporting PCSOs making regular contact with organisations that are supporting older and vulnerable people
- Inter-generational work with Gloucestershire Constabulary Police Cadets
