Cyber crime is a priority for police chief
Commitments around crime prevention and reducing reoffending and the impact of welfare reform on crime are also in Mark Burns-Williamson’s refreshed crime plan for 2013-2018.
Many priorities remain the same – such as reducing burglary, safeguarding people against serious and violent crime, supporting victims and witnesses and better tackling anti-social behaviour.
Mr Burns-Williamson said: “Priorities such as reducing burglary and safeguarding our young people against child sexual exploitation remain in the plan, but I also recognise we need to tackle emerging threats such as cyber crime and highlight the importance of road safety for communities.
“With partners I will undertake a review to look at the scale and impact of cyber crime and look at how we address the growing problem locally.
He added: “Time and time again people tell me that road safety is a big problem where they live.”
