Community confidence action research

On Wednesday 2 November 2022 I chaired the latest meeting of the Community Confidence Steering Group. The Steering Group is overseeing the project being undertaking with Police Scotland to better understand the link between confidence in policing and areas of socio-economic presence. The work we have initiated in Letham in Perth to explore this is progressing well. The community survey inviting input from anyone who lives in the area closes on Tuesday 15 November 2022. The project team are also working with Perth and Kinross Council to develop a survey aimed at inviting the views of those under 16 who live in Letham.

The Steering Group has also agreed the next two project areas for this work: Methil West in Fife and Irvine Fullarton in North Ayrshire. Engagement with the divisional commanders is already underway and we expect to engage with the Local Authorities and community organisations at the end of the year and into early 2023.
