West Yorkshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Mark Burns-Williamson, launched the new Police and Crime Plan on 6th December, 2016.
The Police and Crime Plan sets the outcomes, and priorities that will drive the work of the Police and Crime Commissioner, West Yorkshire Police and their partnership working over the next 5 years.
The outcomes are, tackle crime and anti-social behaviour, safeguard vulnerable people, make sure criminal justice works for communities and support victims and witnesses.
This new Plan takes over from the previous Police and Crime Plan and was created following an extensive consultation.
It is the largest consultation the office has ever carried out with the public, partners and the police around policing priorities and community safety.
Missing people is one of the new priorities within this latest Plan. West Yorkshire Police receive nearly 5,000 calls regarding missing people every year, 20% of which are considered to be “high-risk”.
