Creating Safer Communities - Our Plan 2017 - 2022

Our Plan sets out how we are going to make the people who live, work and visit Devon and Somerset safer whilst reducing costs. All public services have to operate with less money and we are no exception. Significant financial pressures require us to review each and every aspect of our organisation all the while ensuring we keep you safe.

The future of our service needs to reflect both the type of risk we are presented with and the savings we need to make. We also want to improve how we work with our communities to understand how we can provide the best advice, support and response to ensure you live a safer life. This is our Integrated Risk Management Plan.

Our Priorities:

  • public safety
  • staff safety
  • effectiveness and efficiency
