This public consultation ran 1st September to 19th November 2021, and has now closed.

Thank you to everyone that took part. The feedback gathered will be used to help develop the Police and Crime Plan. Information collected from the consultation will be crucial, not only in setting priorities but also to ensure we are focusing activity and funding on the areas of greatest need to the people of West Yorkshire. It is expected that the new Police and Crime Plan will be launched in early 2022.

The information below was presented during the public consultation.




The West Yorkshire Police and Crime Plan is created and published by the Mayor of West Yorkshire, Tracy Brabin.

Under the Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act 2011, the Mayor must produce a Police and Crime Plan which sets out the strategic policing and crime priorities for West Yorkshire, and how she plans to meet them. The plan also has a requirement to set out the objectives and priorities of the work and activity of West Yorkshire Police and the Chief Constable for the next three years, and how the Mayor will hold the Chief Constable to account in delivering these objectives.

The new Plan will draw on a wide range of information to ensure it reflects the policing and crime issues which are affecting West Yorkshire, and listening to the opinions of West Yorkshire's residents and communities is a key part of the Plan’s development.

It is important that all our communities and partners have their say, and this includes the views of women and girls and victims of crime.

Your views and the information collected in this survey will be used to ensure the Mayor, along with her Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime, Alison Lowe, is focusing activity and funding on the areas of greatest need and of greatest concern to the people of West Yorkshire.
