CPT community engagement survey ACTION REQUIRED

Correspondence from the Salisbury Area Community Policing Team

Dear All

Please find below a request for your feedback on how we are doing.  As you will appreciate, your feedback is essential to help as part of the post-implementation review to test and check the expected benefits of the improved CPT model which included “Increased Neighbourhood and community engagement producing increased Community confidence and engagement.” whilst keeping in mind the impact that Covid has had over the last 12 months.

I welcome your observations ‘warts and all’ and happy to discuss personally any specific current issues you wish to raise with me outside of this process.  The survey link can be found in the text below.

Salisbury Area Community Policing Team

Wiltshire Police’s Continuous Improvement team are undertaking a review of the Force’s Community Police Teams (CPT) and are looking to gather feedback on the level of neighbourhood activity and community engagement. They have asked me to send out this short survey in order to capture your views, the survey can be accessed here.  All responses received will be confidential and used for purposes of their review only.  The more people that respond, the better understanding we will have on how the CPT model is working, so please do consider taking part, your views are very important to us.  

 

If you would like to get directly in touch with a member of the Continuous Improvement Team, please contact  or . The survey will be open until Monday 22nd February.

Salisbury Community Policing Report (Key Updates)

The most significant update since my last report must focus on COVID-19. Lockdown 2 has led into Lockdown 3 as we witness cases, hospital admissions and deaths sadly rising rapidly. No longer are we looking for evidence of the existence of this pandemic as many of us will now have either seen the effects personally or with friends and family. The tragic sudden death of a 36 year of fit male isolating in Salisbury with his brother must serve as a reminder of the dangers of this virus and the need to take this seriously.
