SAFER NEIGHBOURHOOD PANELS - LICHFIELD, NEWCASTLE-UNDER-LYME AND STAFFORD

The Police Crime Commissioner (PCC) is aiming for Staffordshire to be the most open and transparent police force in the country. Local ownership and accountability is central to this vision, whereby the public have a greater sense of confidence in policing. To enable this to happen, the PCC has implemented an initiative called ‘Safer Neighbourhood Panels’. The panels are designed to ensure that people are better informed and involved, that intelligence and information is shared appropriately and to build links and share areas of concern in local communities.
