Partners and Communities Together (PACT) is the process through which you can raise any issues or concerns you have in your area to your local Neighbourhood Policing Team and partner agencies (such as local council or housing provider). We can then work with you and our partners to take action and resolve these issues.
There are a number of ways you can get in touch with your Neighbourhood Policing Team to talk about issues or concerns, to have your say on local policing and community safety priorities, and to get involved in tackling the issues.
These are regular open meetings, usually run by the local council, and attended by your Neighbourhood Policing Team and other partner agencies. These meetings will be named differently depending on the area in which you live (eg PACT Meetings, Safer Stronger Community Groups, Neighbourhood Forums, Local Action Groups, Connecting Communities Area Forums, or Public Forums). They may be included as part of other public meetings, such as Parish or Town Council or Community meetings.
These are held regularly in a variety of places, such as your local shopping centre, library or community centre, where you can have a one-to-one conversation with your local policing team.
You can contact your Neighbourhood Policing Team or find out what your local priorities are and raise new ones by visiting the ‘Your Area’ section of the website.
Look out for the ‘Working Together’ logo which will tell you whenever there is an opportunity for you to have your say or take part.
You can find out about all future meetings and events on your local Neighbourhood Policing Team’s events calendar online by visiting the ‘Your Area’ section of the website.
