COMMUNITY safety leaders have joined forces.
Hampshire police commissioner Simon Hayes has formed an alliance with local community safety partnerships to hear what issues are faced by different areas.
The alliance met for the first time on Thursday and will meet four times a year.
Mr Hayes said: ‘Through these meetings I will hear first-hand the risks, priorities, and emerging issues being faced by CSPs and identify opportunities for closer working between partners.
‘It will also help me to ensure that CSPs are fully informed of my priorities and policies, as set out in my police and crime plan and to work with the CSPs on emerging national issues.
‘All this will ensure collaborative arrangements are in place so that local concerns are reflected in OPCC funding.
‘The alliance will also help provide assurance as to the efficient and effective application of funding provided by me to achieve agreed outcomes.’
The scheme will help make sure is spent on achieving Mr Hayes’ plan’s aims.
