Southfield Police Team Holding Resident Survey

Want to hear views ahead of this month's ward panel meeting

Southfield Police Team Holding Resident Survey

The next quarterly ward panel meeting for the Southfield Safer Neighbourhood Team is coming up on 17 January 2022.

Beforehand they would like residents of Southfield ward to fill out a short 'smart survey' to learn about the current policing priorities of local people.

The survey will enable Dedicated Ward Officers (DWOs) to engage with a broader section of the ward than the ward panel members alone.

Results from these surveys are collated and fed back into the ward panel meeting to inform the panel’s decision making.

The ward panel meets 4 times a year to discuss anti-social behaviour or crime which effects the local area/community.

One of the purposes of the ward panel is to set ward priorities, Safer Neighbourhood Teams (SNT) will work towards a minimum of three new priorities, the first priority will be set by the SNT and will be violence related.

The Ward Panel will set a minimum of two local ward priorities.

Priorities will be reviewed by the panel at the next meeting, and the panel with scrutinise the police response before deciding whether to keep the priority, or replace it with a new one.
