Commissioner publishes first annual report
Police and Crime Commissioner Alison Hernandez has today published her annual report.
In launching the report Ms Hernandez said: "This report covers a busy productive first 10 months for me and my team – working to deliver the best results that we can for the people who live, work and visit our beautiful counties and islands.
"Since taking up office on 12 May 2016 I have worked closely with the OPCC team, the chief constable and wider partners to develop our new Police and Crime Plan 2017-2020 ‘Safe, Resilient and Connected Communities’ and to drive forward work in a number of key areas.
"We have set a clear direction for the future, deepened and strengthened our support services for victims and released additional funding to partners through our commissioning approach to support and enhance their work locally to help the communities we all serve.
"These remain challenging times but by continuing to work together, thinking innovatively and working to enhance our efficiency and effectiveness we can deliver much over the coming years.
"Our Police and Crime Plan “Safe, resilient and connected communities” sets out our priorities for the next three years. At the heart of it is our commitment to work as hard as possible to connect our communities and the police and to ensure that policing in the local area is “Accessible, Responsive, Informative and Supportive”.
"I look forward to continuing to serve the people of Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly and to working with the Chief Constable, all of our communities and our partners."
