Launch of the Community Safety and Criminal Justice Plan
The consultation process for my new Police and Crime Plan has begun - and I am now describing it as a Community Safety and Criminal Justice Plan.

The name change reflects the new emphasis I am intending to bring to the criminal justice system as a whole during my second term as Police and Crime Commissioner, in order to provide a better service to victims. 

I've published a draft of the new plan, which builds on the work of the previous plans and aims to deliver on the programme I set out in my election manifesto last May. Like the previous plans, it is called Everybody’s Business, because at its heart is a conviction that keeping Hertfordshire safe is the business not just of the police, but of our partners in the public and private sectors and of each of us as ordinary citizens – we all have a role to play.

I would invite you all to look at the draft plan and tell me what you think – are there any changes you would like to see or additions made? You will also have the opportunity to take our survey, which just has 6 questions and a comment text box at the end for you to input your thoughts on what matters to you. Your views matter and the plan is available for viewing and comment over the next few months on this page.

You can also send your comments to me via email to: or by post to the Police and Crime Commissioner for Hertfordshire, 15 Vaughan Road, Harpenden, Hertfordshire, AL5 4GZ. The consultation period is open from today until 16th January 2017.

I look forward to hearing your thoughts.

David Lloyd
Police and Crime Commissioner for Hertfordshire
