Are we treating diverse communities fairly? Date published: 28th August 2015 11.12am

Do you feel the Police have the right priorities for ensuring residents in our most diverse communities are being kept safe?

This is one of the questions in a survey being run by Cheshire Constabulary that asks the public to feedback on how well it is meeting the policing needs of our diverse communities, including black and minority communities, lesbian, gay and transgender people, those with a disability and religious minorities.

Each year the Constabulary reviews its plans to improve policing services, including those services for individuals and groups who may suffer disproportionate levels of crime.

The equality objectives survey asks the public for their views on the Constabulary’s equalities objectives.

Deputy Chief Constable Janette McCormick said:

"It is important that the Cheshire public contributes to the way we respond to issues like hate crime, and other crimes that can disproportionately some of the most vulnerable.

"We're a diverse county, and we want to hear the public's views so that officers and staff can better meet the needs of those whose voice is often not heard.

“This survey looks specifically at our plans to improve the way we keep safe some of the most vulnerable in Cheshire, just as we seek the views of all of our communities throughout the year so that everyone has a chance to shape the work of the Constabulary."

The equality objectives survey closes on Monday 21st September.
