Police Scotland want to hear from the public and our partners about how we shape the service that we provide.
In 2017 we agreed a ten year strategy for how we want to build a sustainable service able to adapt to the needs of a changing Scotland. Since then, we have been planning for and delivering change, whilst continuing to provide the local and specialist services that keep people safe.
Each year we are required to publish an Annual Police Plan which sets out our operational priorities for the year ahead.
This year we will enhance that by bringing together the work we do locally and nationally on the frontline, in our support functions and to transform our service, into one plan covering the next three years.
This will show how all the parts of the service come together to make a positive impact for policing and society and to keep people safe across Scotland against a set of strategic outcomes.
As part of our ongoing engagement, we are looking for opinions from people across Scotland on our proposed outcomes, our approach, and how you want to be involved in working with us to continue to shape future services.
We are also keen to hear your views to help shape our future strategies in respect to prevention and public contact and engagement.
Your opinions will help us to make sure that our plan fits with expectations and enables continued collaboration, and that we identify any areas of the plan that require to be amended or strengthened.
Our plan will be laid before the Scottish Parliament by the end of March.The survey will be open until the 18th of March 2019.
