(adapted from Police Scotland's website)
Police Scotland consults with the public every year on what their priorities are for policing in their community. This year the consultation process is widening, becoming more flexible, and moving online to a digital format that will be open all year.
Everyone's views across Scotland will be taken on board at a national and local level. There is no 'one size fits all' approach to local policing and all the needs and wants of individual communities will be considered.
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.
Police Scotland will keep you updated on our quarterly results. The consultation will be a completely transparent process as it's all about your priorities.
