Preventing crime and keeping people safe are the aims of Chris Nelson, Police and Crime Commissioner for Gloucestershire as he launches his first Police and Crime Prevention Plan 

The plan’s priorities (at a glance) are:

  • Creating safer communities

Reducing crime and anti-social behaviour and increasing feelings of safety

  • Tackling violence against women and girls

Challenging unacceptable attitudes and behaviour

  • Strengthening your Constabulary

A trusted, visible and responsive policing family

  • Targeting the causes of crime

Prioritising those most at risk of harm

  • Supporting victims and reducing reoffending

A people centred justice system

Chris said, “I want Gloucestershire to be the safest place in the country to live and work, My plan brings together the police, partners and the public of Gloucestershire to build safe and secure communities, to ensure the public have confidence in their police force and that victims are satisfied with the service and support they receive.”

“I firmly believe in better connected communities, where by utilising our collective assets, we can work together to make life better”.

Chris is also on the lookout for fresh ideas to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour and bring communities even closer together. He is inviting organisations to submit ideas that will help address the plan’s priorities.

Grants can cover a range of costs such as practical work, group or partnership development, awareness raising and training, equipment and materials. You can find out to apply here:
