On May 15th 2023, the Scottish Police Authority and Police Scotland held an engagement session with representatives from the community of Levenmouth as part of the Community Confidence Action Research Project.

Two sessions were initially scheduled at different venues in Leven and Methil. Attendees could select which session they would prefer to attend. Unfortunately, the second session in Methil was cancelled due to external factors, thus the session in Leven was the only one to be held. Attendees for the Methil session were invited to respond to the engagement session questions via email and given the option of an MS Teams meeting.

At the Leven session, there were 20 attendees, including council officers, locally elected members and community group leaders. The day focused on the findings of recent surveys conducted in Levenmouth and sought to gain insights on how people felt policing in Levenmouth could be enhanced via table and room discussions of the following questions:

Do you recognise Levenmouth in these findings and in what ways?

Is there anything you feel is missing from the findings or would want to add?

What do you think could enhance confidence in policing in Levenmouth?

This paper summarises the key themes from this engagement and the ideas people had for enhancing confidence in policing. Notes taken by facilitators at each discussion table were collated, along with notes from the engagement with the community groups, to identify ideas expressed by people that could enhance confidence in policing in the area. This led to the identification of three key areas which are detailed in this paper (Communication and Engagement, Visibility, and Education).
