Everyone is treated fairly and in accordance with their policing and crime needs by:

  • Working together to understand the different communities in South Yorkshire and their individual policing and crime needs, taking action to prioritise community concerns
  • Managing incoming calls for service, acknowledging and managing the risk of inadvertently supressing demand
  • Understanding and taking action to address the factors affecting trust and confidence in South Yorkshire Police amongst hard to reach communities, as identified in the jointly commissioned baseline assessment of trust and confidence
  • Working with partners to understand why trust and confidence levels among victims of crime is lower than the general population, the impact this has on their journey through the criminal justice system, and putting into place measures to provide a better victim experience
  • Creating and fostering a culture of listening, learning and embracing constructive challenge within the workforce, taking action to address workforce concerns, and promoting pride in working for South Yorkshire Police
