Local Policing Plans

Police Scotland and Edinburgh Council want your help creating the 2014-2017 Local Policing Plan.

There is a drop-in session at McDonald Road Library Wednesday 3rd November, 2-4 pm. (There are other drop-in sessions. Here are the details.) Alternatively, there is an online questionnaire.

Here is the current Edinburgh local policing plan. The introduction reads

This plan sets out the local policing priorities and objectives for Edinburgh Division for 2013-2014 and is a statutory requirement of the Police and Fire Reform (Scotland) Act 2012. It complements and builds on the Scottish Government’s overarching vision for public services, the Strategic Police Priorities set by Scottish Ministers, the Scottish Police Authorities Strategic Police Plan and the Chief Constable of Scotland’s Annual Police Plan.

The policing plan for Edinburgh represents a critical part of the delivery process for the new service, demonstrating our commitment to local policing at the same time as the service generates a national planning framework. The plan is designed so as to enable police officers and staff in the city to respond effectively to the concerns of local communities at the same time as meeting and tackling national demands. As a local authority plan it will be supported by seventeen ‘ward level’ plans, which respond directly to community needs and demands.
