The Police and Crime Plan 2017 – 2021 sets out the four key priorities for Wiltshire Police to focus on to help:

  • Prevent crime and keep people safe
  • Protect the most vulnerable people in society
  • Put victims, witnesses and communities at the heart of everything we do
  • Secure a quality police service that is trusted and efficient.

The Police and Crime Plan is dynamic and flexible, reflecting the changes in patterns of crime and behaviour and allowing for priorities to be adapted to meet the demands of the community.

The Chief Constable uses evidence and intelligence to advise the Police and Crime Commissioner.

Who's in charge of policing? Is it the Home Secretary, the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) or the Chief Constable? Who reports to whom? Who's answerable to the public? Where does the buck stop? It's a complex picture, Icon for pdf so here is a simple guide to who does what. [2.04MB]
