Minutes:

Sgt Donna West – Wiltshire Police introduced a short film which outlined Wiltshire Police’s new policing model.

 

Points made by Sgt West included:

 

·       That Wiltshire Police couldn’t continue to provide its current level of policing without doing some serious thinking on how it was able to provide good community policing during this period of austerity.

 

·       The need to put victims of crime and witnesses first.

 

·       Less handovers of ownership of a crime/incident – less officers/admin staff dealing with an incident.

 

·       Victims of crime being better informed of developments re their incident.

 

·       To change the dialogue – listen more to people.

 

·       The desire to re-design the way Wiltshire police worked – to move away from a rigid, one dimensional way of working.

 

·       Putting the right people in the right place.

 

·       That rural areas would see a better service – higher police visibility.

 

·       Officers working in the community, working from Libraries, High Street cafes using new technology to keep them out on the beat rather than shackled to a police station.

 

·       That Inspector Dave Hobman would continue to be the sector inspector for the Royal Wootton Bassett and Cricklade community areas.

 

·       That PCSOs would remain in their current beat areas.

 

The Chairman thanked Sgt West for her presentation.
