DN 09/2022 Police and Crime and Fire and Rescue Plans

The Commissioner has decided to issue her statutory Plans following a rigorous consultation and approval process.

DN 09/2022       Date 19/05/2022


The Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner has a duty to publish a Police and Crime Plan and a Fire and Rescue Plan that sets out the strategic priorities for policing and fire and rescue services respectively.

The Commissioner has developed her Plans based on extensive consultation with the public over 3 months in 2021 in which an unprecedented number of over 3500 people were engaged and over 2000 responded fully to the consultation. The Plans are the product of a clear understanding of the public’s priorities for North Yorkshire Police, North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service and for our community safety and criminal justice partners – as well as what they expect to see from the services the Commissioner provides and arranges for victims and the vulnerable, through her own Office of the PFCC.

On 16 March 2022, the Commissioner submitted draft Plans for review by the Police, Fire and Crime Panel who provided feedback, which the Commissioner has taken on board (and about which the Commissioner has had further individual Member dialogue) and to which the Commissioner has a duty to respond in full to the Panel. The statutory exchange of correspondence must be published on the Commissioner’s website and is appended to this DN as Appendices 1 and 2.

Following the completion of this process, the Commissioner is satisfied that these Plans fully reflect the priorities of the public of North Yorkshire and the City of York and looks forward to ensuring that they are delivered by North Yorkshire Police, North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service, our local regional and national partners and by the Commissioner’s Office.
