Clydebank residents are being asked to submit their views on what they want their local policing priorities to be.

Drug dealing and drug misuse, antisocial behaviour and disorder, violent crime, homes being broken into, and child abuse and child sexual exploitation are the 2017-2020 current priorities for West Dunbartonshire.

In order to develop a new local policing plan for 2020-2023, residents are being asked to have their say on what they think is most important. An online consultation has been set up to give as many people as possible the opportunity to get involved.

Chief Inspector Scott Carlin, area commander for West Dunbartonshire, said: “Your views are very important and will help us shape our policing priorities for the next three years.

“The survey is very straightforward and only takes five to 10 minutes to complete. Please take the time to tell us what you think by completing the short survey.”

Local Police Plans set out how officers will support local communities to keep people safe. They also work in partnership with members of the Community Planning Partnerships to tackle areas of identified need and this is reflected in the plans.

As well as the online survey, crime data and trends, consultation with local authority and community planning partners, surveys, public events are also carried out in order to help shape the plans.
