Your local Longmoor Neighbourhood Policing Team needs your help in setting the Local Community Policing Priorities for your area for the next 3 months. In order to ensure that we are working effectively in the community, we need you to tell us what issues are affecting you the most. Our aim is to reduce Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB) and crime and increase confidence in the Police; as well as to make your neighbourhood a safer place to live and work. We will give you information that indicates where the demand for Police resources is located. All we ask is that you spare 5 minutes to complete this survey to give us a clear understanding of the issues that matter to you. We will use these results, along with Police and partner agency data, to set our priorities for the next 3 months.

I have always believed effective policing is at the heart of healthy society. That is why Hampshire Constabulary can't afford to just maintain its position as a good police force. It must become a standard bearer for protecting the most vulnerable and reducing offending. And, as your new Chief Constable, I am excited about taking on this challenge.
A key part of success will remain catching those who prey on the vulnerable, but we can't just respond to victims when they have suffered. We need to be better at preventing offending in the first place. This includes safeguarding the vulnerable, not least those at risk of child sexual exploitation and domestic abuse. None of this can be done by the police acting alone.
The cases we deal with can be complex and the unfortunate truths are that that we tend to deal with people on their most difficult days and much of the sophisticated work that goes on behind the scenes to stop people becoming victims cannot be widely publicised. This means that what my officers, staff and those who volunteer their help do every day is important, but so is why and how.
If the police are seen to act arrogantly or as if they have a right to do as they wish public confidence becomes damaged and victims are not put first. To be an effective police officer, let alone chief constable, you need to earn the trust and respect of all communities. That is what decades of British policing has been built upon. So everything we do must be rooted in the highest standards of integrity and transparency. You deserve nothing less from us.
Our communities are wonderfully rich, diverse and deserving of brilliant policing. I want ideas, voices, perspectives and experience beyond the traditional spheres. I would like to use this opportunity on day one in my new role to invite all of you to join me, to work with me and to support my staff and officers.
In return we will become even better at protecting you and safeguarding the most vulnerable in society. And, as your Chief Constable, I will work tirelessly to make sure that what we do is as transparent as possible and to explain the difficult decisions when we have to make them.
Together we can keep this one of the safest places to live in the country and stop those who make people's lives a misery.

The City of London Police, in partnership with Get Safe Online, has put together a National Cyber Crime Survey. Its purpose is to learn about people’s awareness of online safety and experiences of cybercrime, with a view to improve our knowledge and understanding and to help provide a better response to victims. The results will help police forces gain a better idea of the challenges they are facing. If you have a spare 15 minutes, we would be grateful if you could complete a short questionnaire.

I was delighted to be invited as Chairman of the East Hampshire Community Safety Partnership to the 'Close to Home - Preventing Violent Extremism' Conference at Winchester on Friday 14th October.
The speakers occupy high profile positions and were very knowledgable and interesting. The Agenda included:
- Making you, your family and community safer
- A practitioners journey in counter-extremism
- H&IOW threat assessment
- Introduction to the National strategy
- PREVENT Strategy for H&IOW.
The presentations were followed by table discussions, feedback and conclusions.
I was particularly interested in the counter-terrorism item not least because the speaker had a deep understanding of such as radicalisation way beyond my previous level of knowledge. The Safeguarding, Quality and Assurance Service Manager at HCC, a member of the HIOW Prevent Partnership Board, reviewed the PREVENT Strategy and explained how PREVENT work and existing community safety processes may interact with each other.
Michael Lane, the Police and Crime Commissioner for H&IOW reaffirmed his promise to all residents across our policing area is to make people and their families safer.
