Supporting Communities

1. FUNDING COMMUNITY PROJECTS

The Police need the support of the public and other agencies to reduce crime and disorder.

Community partnerships play an important role in helping to reduce crime and disorder, supporting victims and providing facilities, schemes and projects to help the people of Wiltshire .

I will continue to support and encourage such schemes with appropriate funding to help reduce the impact of crime on our communities.

I have seen the positive impact that sport can have on diverting youth away from the wrong path and it is important to encourage and support the establishment of sporting activities in the county and provide opportunities which may not be currently present.

I am very keen to divert offenders away from criminal activity and will actively seek opportunities with employers to establish schemes where offenders can be integrated into working life.

2. IMPROVING VICTIM CARE

Victims and witnesses are at the heart of the criminal justice system. All too often we hear stories of how victims feel poorly treated, that witnesses are scared of coming forward and of going to court.

I will ensure that victims receive the best possible service they can, I will achieve this by supporting and providing additional funding to witness care programmes.

Also improved awareness for all police staff on providing the best possible service, this will have a positive impact on victims and will improve on trust and ultimately in serving justice.

Those who witness crimes should also be afforded as much care and protection they need,

I will ensure that any witness intimidation is dealt with robustly and offenders prosecuted.
