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