It’s been yet another busy month for the OPCC!
October has seen Hate Crime Awareness Week, World Mental Health Day, Anti-slavery Day and this week we’re celebrating the first ever International Control Room Week.
It’s great to have these special days and weeks to raise the profile of different things affecting our communities, recognise the good work being done and highlight what more we can do.
I’ve been up to London to give evidence at the Public Accounts Committee about the financial sustainability of police forces in England and Wales.
Once again I took this opportunity to lobby Government for fairer funding for rural forces like ours. It is simply not fair that the funding formula does not take into consideration the large number of tourists who visit our beautiful counties ever year and the additional pressure this puts on our police force and all our emergency services.
This isn’t the first time and I suspect it won’t be the last time I’ll be having this conversation but it certainly isn’t something I’ll be giving up on anytime soon.
Keep up to date with news from the office by following us on Twitter, Facebook or via our website.
