Hertfordshire's Police and Crime Plan - 'Everybody's
Building on strong foundations;
Public Focus; Offender Pays; Business Sense
As part of my job I need to produce
a Police and Crime Plan – laying out plans for policing and the
other services that keep Hertfordshire safe, as well as explaining
how budgets will be spent.
The draft plan went out for
public consultation in early February 2013

What’s in the
The plan recognises the great
successes of the Constabulary and partners to date and proposes
continual improvement, building upon these strong foundations. I
want to ensure we continue to deliver effective local policing,
that our detection and conviction rates remain high and that we
continue to protect especially our most vulnerable.
And underpinning all of our work
there are three main strategic themes:
- Public focus
- Offender pays

The offender pays
theme is about making offenders pay for the costs they create as

The business sense
theme is about working more closely with local businesses, about
efficiency and about taking a more business-like approach to
Constabulary and partnership use of resources and assets.
It is my role to write this plan
and to drive it forwards, in conjunction with the Chief Constable
and with partner agencies like the county, district and borough
councils, but it is a plan that asks more of all of us, across the
county. I want the County to be proud of its Constabulary, of its
leadership and of its reputation as being a very safe place to live
