PCC phone survey
9:27pm Tuesday 15th October 2013 in News
MORE than 4,000 households across Wiltshire and Swindon will be getting a call in the coming months from researchers gathering opinions on behalf of the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC), Angus Macpherson.
Under the law that created PCCs Commissioners must gather the views of the public about policing in their area. The phone survey will also explore issues such as quality of life and fear of crime.
The research will be carried out in two phases, with the first getting underway on Monday, October 21 and running through to early December, and the second in spring 2014.
The data will be shared with Wiltshire Police because it will contain important insights into the levels of confidence that respondents have in their Neighbourhood Policing Team.
Chief Superintendent Paul Mills, the county’s head of local policing, said: “This is a great opportunity for communities in Wiltshire to feed back to the police about the service they receive.
“We want continually to improve the quality of our service to the public, tackling the things that are most important to them. I would ask that the public support this survey and take the opportunity to have their say."
The research will be conducted by a company called Information by Design and the questions should take about 15 minutes to answer.
If you receive a call and have any concerns about the validity of the caller phone the Office of the PCC on 01380 734 022 and ask for Ruth McGee on extension 2396.
