Police call for views

Police call for views

PEOPLE living in Dumfries and Galloway are being urged to make their views known about policing in their area.

Police Scotland launched a survey earlier this year – Your Police 2020-2021 – which asks communities to share their opinions about the policing response to coronavirus within their division.

It also includes questions on public confidence in the police and perception of crime in local areas.

The survey is the largest of its kind in the UK to involve the public in a conversation about policing and coronavirus and tens of thousands of responses have been received so far.

Dumfries and Galloway divisional commander Chief Superintendent Linda Jones said: “The survey is open throughout the year to help us identify and understand people’s opinions of their local police service, as well as any concerns about safety and wellbeing in their area.

“During these challenging times and beyond, I would strongly urge people to take the time now to give us your views and opinions as your feedback will ensure that our approaches to policing are relevant and supporting the communities we serve.

“We have maintained a strong level of public confidence in Scottish policing over the past few months and we value the strong relationships we have with our communities.

“Your participation can play a crucial role in shaping our services for Dumfries and Galloway and beyond.”

You can find it online at or call 07717 150 296 and leave a message.
