To         Shetland Community Councils

 

From     Chief Inspector Lindsay Tulloch  

 

 

 

The public consultation is for you to tell us what is important to you in your community. Your opinion is valued – we need your opinion to inform our policing. Having your say in the decision making process of Police Scotland is a vital tool for residents of Scotland to be able to shape the way their public services should operate.

 

It's a very simple process that should only take a few moments of your time but will shape the way that policing is coordinated across Scotland and in your local community.

 

Please take time and encourage others to complete this questionnaire which can be found at Scotland.Police.uk/yourviewcounts.
