Message from Marc Jones, Police & Crime Commissioner for Lincolnshire
I wanted to take the opportunity to outline for you the progress I have made in my role as the Police and Crime Commissioner in the last 12 months in the drive to keep our communities safe.
My annual report (attached) sets out a raft of achievements made towards delivering on the promises I made in my Safer Together plan.
A key focus for me has been to ensure that our force has the capability to help prevent harm in our communities as well as find, intercept and arrest criminals wherever and whenever they try to strike.
In our use of technology we are now at the leading edge of policing and, given that we have one of the smallest forces in the UK, that allows us to deploy our resources as effectively as possible.
Yet these endeavors account for only part of my time, responsibilities and progress.
In fact the work my office performs in preventing crime, protecting victims and the vulnerable and taking a lead role in partnership working in order to deliver the most effective and efficient delivery of public services is certainly as important.
The attached annual report details how my office has brought partners together from the health service, local authorities, chief officers, criminal justice and the third sector to draw up and deliver strategies on a range of issues.
My vital work to protect the vulnerable, address road safety, prevent crime and provide victims with better services are also all outlined in the document.
I hope you find the report both useful and interesting. If you have any questions I would be delighted to hear from you.
Police and Crime Commissioner Marc Jones
