Lichfield residents asked to feedback on criminal justice

Staffordshire Criminal Justice BoardStaffordshire Criminal Justice Board has launched an online poll to ask for feedback from residents throughout Staffordshire, including Lichfield, Burntwood and surrounding areas.

The poll is part of a Government consultation looking at how the public can have more of a say and get involved in criminal justice in their area. It’s all part of the Engaging Communities in Criminal Justice Green Paper.

There are three questions on the poll, which is available on the Criminal Justice System’s web site, asking;

  • Would you like to know more about what is being done to tackle crime in your area?
  • Would you like to have more of a say in how crime is dealth with in your area?
  • Would you like to know more information about criminal justice services in your area?

The CJS is also asking the public to take part in the full consultation to get more of their views included. The views will be fed back directly to ministers who will use the feedback to help make policy decisions.

Launching the poll in Staffordshire, Peter Hammersley, Chair of Staffordshire Criminal Justice Board said: “It’s absolutely vital that everyone has a chance to have their say in how justice is delivered, and that’s exactly what the new online poll is offering – a quick and easy way to make sure their views are heard by those at the very top. It takes less than two minutes to take part – I encourage everyone in Staffordshire to get involved – we need their views by 31 July 2009.”
