DO you have a view on neighbourhood policing?
If so, South Yorkshire Police wants you to take part in an online survey.
The force wants to find out what people think of neighbourhood policing in their area.
The survey asks members of the public for their opinions on neighbourhood policing and the service they receive from the force.
It follows a series of eight consultation events, hosted by Chief Constable Stephen Watson in April and May, during which people were asked to take part in a live version of the survey.
All views and opinions from the online survey and consultation events will be collated and used to suggest how neighbourhood policing should work.
The results will be posted on the force website and a survey will take place again after changes are made.
Chief Supt Scott Green, leading on the force’s neighbourhood policing review, said: “We don’t want to design a new neighbourhood policing model without listening to the public we serve first.
“We need to hear from people from all communities across South Yorkshire about the neighbourhood policing service they currently receive, so we can work with them to develop our new model.
“It’s really important that as many South Yorkshire residents as possible have their say, as we’ll be using the results of this survey to help us deliver a service that, as far as possible, meets the needs and requirements of communities.
“This is your chance to influence decisions made about your police force, so please take five minutes out of your day to let us know your views.”
The survey closes on Friday, July 14.
