Have your say on plans to reduce crime

Volunteer Police Community Support Officers (VPCSOs) could be introduced in Lincolnshire as part of the plan.
Up to 1,000 VCPCOs could be hired to work alongside employed officers and staff.
He said: "This is part of a wider plan to offer more opportunities for the people of Lincolnshire to make a real contribution to the policing of our County."

Also outlined is that the number of police officers will be maintained at 1,100 which has resulted in the recruitment of 23 officers being brought forward. Street drinking was also targeted in the plan with a commitment made to zero tolerance of unlawful and nuisance street drinking.
Mr Hardwick said: "I believe I have a plan that will see crime reduce, deliver a fair deal for the people of Lincolnshire and provide police and services that are there when you need them.
"Savings have been identified that I am confident will enable the entirety of my plan to be implemented effectively and also mean that I can set a budget and precept within Government parameters."
