Ha ve your say on Rotherham crime

POLICE bosses want Rotherham folk to have their say about policing in their area.

South Yorkshire Police and South Yorkshire Police Authority have sent their 'Your Voice Counts' survey to more than 48,000 households in the region to gather information and monitor public perception on neighbourhood policing.

The survey asks questions on matters ranging from anti-social behaviour to criminal justice and also gauges opinion on value for money.

Charles Perryman, chairman of South Yorkshire Police Authority said: “The 'Your Voice Counts' survey is a very important indicator to us of what the public feel they want and are receiving from the police and its authority.

“South Yorkshire is divided into 23 Safer Neighbourhood Areas (SNA's), and by covering all of them we can gauge what the public think the police, and ourselves at the police authority, should prioritise in the area they live in.”

About a quarter of those randomly surveyed last year responded and this year the police and police authority want more people to provide their opinions.

As an incentive to reply, questionnaires returned will be entered into a prize draw to win a choice between an iPod Nano, Nintendo DS Lite, digital camera, mobile phone or shopping vouchers worth £100.

Anyone who wants to complete the survey can do so online at www.southyorks.police.uk/yvc.
