E-Cops - 'Have your say' on the future of policing in Cambridgeshire

You have the chance to help shape the future of policing in Cambridgeshire using a new online tool.

The ‘Have your say’ section on the force website will feature weekly projects being considered for a more efficient and effective policing model.

The force faces a number of challenges over the next few years as we work to balance the books and ensure we make the best use of resources.

Work is already underway to review the existing force structure to create a new policing model that provides the best possible service to the public. 

Our focus remains on frontline duties and a commitment to bringing offenders to justice and keeping people safe. 

Now you can get involved in helping us achieve this by having your say about the changes being made to the force. 

We are very interested in your opinions and will be taking the responses into account as we redesign the force’s structure. 

Each week a topic under review will be posted on the force website for people to comment on or post questions. All comments, questions and answers will be viewable and the forum will be live for at least the next three months. 

The first topic will be the review of all non-frontline duties carried out by police officers. This includes managerial, analytical, training and call handling. 

Over the life of the restructure we will look at each of the officers in these posts and consider which should be returned to the frontline and in what timeframe.

Kind regards

Chief Constable Simon Parr - 'Have your say'
