  7. What is Citizen Focus • Putting Citizens at the heart of policing • More than just neighbourhood policing • Its all parts of policing , major crime to response policing • Designing services from the outside in • Listening to and actively seeking feedback to improve service delivery • An honest dialogue • Positive Proactive Policing • Working with councils and partner agencies so all do their bit for communities.

  10. Our Challenge To Build Police Service Delivery Through the Eyes of the Public

  11. We Are: Developing market research to understand what citizens value Trying to design services according to public standards and tolerances

  12. What the Public Said They Wanted(MRUK Research) A quick response An explanation about what we have done One phone call – if possible Crime solved You know that this is not always possible Turning up is a priority A positive attitude and to feel valued by our staff Able to speak to the officer in the case Patrols at weekends and nights.

  13. CITIZEN FOCUS MYTHS GOOD CITIZEN FOCUS IS NOT:- • FACE TO FACE CONTACT • SPENDING MORE TIME • BEING NICE • DOING EVERYTHING IN THE GUIDANCE/DOCTRINE • SOFT AND FLUFFY • DOING EVERYTHING THE CITIZEN WANTS • NEIGHBOURHOOD POLICING

  14. CITIZEN FOCUS FACTS • CITIZEN FOCUS IS ABOUT:- • ADULT/ADULT RELATIONSHIPS – LISTENING AND UNDERSTANDING • BEING RESPONSIVE TO CITIZENS’ VIEWS OF GOOD SERVICE • BEING FAIR • TREATING PEOPLE WITH INTEGRITY/RESPECT/SENSITIVITY • POSITIVE, PROACTIVE PROFESSIONAL POLICING • SUPPORTIVE DEVELOPMENT OF STAFF

  15. The Policing Pledge THE POLICE SERVICE IN ENGLAND AND WALES WILL SUPPORT LAW ABIDING CITIZENS ANDPURSUE CRIMINALS RELENTLESSLY TO KEEP YOU AND YOUR NEIGHBOURHOODS SAFE FROM HARM. WE WILL: • Always treat you fairly with dignity and respect ensuring you have fair access to our services at a time that is reasonable and suitable for you. • Provide you with information so you know who your dedicated Neighbourhood Policing Team is, where they are based, how to contact them and how to work with them. • Ensure your Neighbourhood Policing Team and other police patrols are visible and on your patch at times when they will be most effective and when you tell us you most need them. We will ensure your team are not taken away from neighbourhood business more than is absolutely necessary. They will spend at least 80% of their time visibly working in your neighbourhood, tackling your priorities. Staff turnover will be minimised. • Respond to every message directed to your Neighbourhood Policing Team within 24 hours and, where necessary, provide a more detailed response as soon as we can. • Aim to answer 999 calls within 10 seconds, deploying to emergencies immediately giving an estimated time of arrival, getting to you safely, and as quickly as possible. In urban areas, we will aim to get to you within 15 minutes and in rural areas within [20] minutes.

  16. Answer all non-emergency calls promptly. If attendance is needed, send a patrol giving you an estimated time of arrival, and: • If you are vulnerable or upset aim to be with you within 60 minutes. • If you are calling about an issue that we have agreed with your community will be a neighbourhood priority (listed below) and attendance is required, we will aim to be with you within 60 minutes. • Alternatively, if appropriate, we will make an appointment to see you at a time that fits in with your life and within 48 hours. • If agreed that attendance is not necessary we will give you advice, answer your questions and / or put you in touch with someone who can help. • Arrange regular public meetings to agree your priorities, at least once a month, giving you a chance to meet your local team with other members of your community. These will include opportunities such as surgeries, street briefings and mobile police station visits which will be arranged to meet local needs and requirements. Your local arrangements can be found below. • Provide monthly updates on progress, and on local crime and policing issues. This will include the provision of crime maps, information on specific crimes and what happened to those brought to justice, details of what action we and our partners are taking to make your neighbourhood safer and information on how your force is performing. • If you have been a victim of crime agree with you how often you would like to be kept informed of progress in your case and for how long. You have the right to be kept informed at least every month if you wish and for as long as is reasonable. • Acknowledge any dissatisfaction with the service you have received within 24 hours of reporting it to us. To help us fully resolve the matter, discuss with you how it will be handled, give you an opportunity to talk in person to someone about your concerns and agree with you what will be done about them and how quickly. We want to do our best for you but if we fail to meet our Pledge we will always explain why it has not been possible on that occasion to deliver the high standards to which we aspire and you deserve.
