Police Consultative Forum seeks public views on Island’s policing 5 October 2007

MEMBERS of the Police Consultative Forum are eager to receive any comments from the public about the Island’s policing.

The forum, established by the Department of Home Affairs, has just been re-appointed for a five year term. With a mixture of experienced and new members, it aims to act as a conduit for public views on policing matters to influence future policing strategy.

At their second meeting recently, Forum members received a briefing by Acting Chief Constable Mike Langdon and Acting Deputy Chief Gary Roberts on the Isle of Man Constabulary’s strategic goals and priorities.

PCF Acting Chairman Bob Jeavons, a member since 1998, explained:

‘Recent developments in the Policing of the Island have recognised the need to listen to the public in determining priorities. The emphasis on local policing has allowed each division to focus on their own circumstances and come up with solutions that fit. It is encouraging to see real progress being made and the concepts of multi agency cooperation towards problem solving becoming a reality. This has already made a significant contribution towards reducing crime and making the Island an even safer place to live and work. Ultimately the quality of our communities is dependent on each of us playing our part.
‘Members of the new PCF wish to be effective and would encourage members of the public to communicate with us through the Department of Home Affairs to help us in our objectives to reduce crime and maintain the quality of life we enjoy.’

Forum members represent all geographical areas of the Island, which correspond with the Neighbourhood Policing Teams. They include: Andre Grenier and Ann McDonald (north); Mayor of Douglas Colin Cain, Thelma Lomax and Gill Skinner (east); Antony Corlett and John Foster (south); and Walter Gilbey and Bob Jeavons (west).
