The consultation is running for 10 weeks and involves a different theme each week to ensure the police are capturing views from as many people as they can.

Chief Inspector Kevin Woods, who is leading on the strategy consultation for Fife Division, said: “The focus this week is on how we develop and deliver our local policing services – so the views of everyone across Fife are really important.We need to ensure that the needs and requirements of local people are understood and reflected in the planning and delivery of policing at a local and national level.

“It has been really encouraging so far to see the interest that has been shown in our consultation by people from across Fife. However, we want to get the views and opinions of as many people as possible. All of the local areas in Fife will be undertaking activity this week to encourage people to provide their views.
