'Local policing is central to Police Scotland and we ask that you share your views by completing our survey accessible via https://consult.scotland.police.uk/surveys/your-police/
We would like to know what issues you think we should prioritise, nationally and in your local area, as well as the best methods for communicating with you.
Your views are important to us and we are committed to using this information to shape our policing priorities – both locally in your area and nationally. We will do this through analysing your feedback and looking at data from a number of other important sources such as local and national crime trends.
What you tell us will also influence how we communicate and engage with you and your community.
