Community Confidence Action Research - Final Event

Dear Resident


The Scottish Police Authority (SPA) and Police Scotland will be hosting a final community policing event to discuss what our joint Community Confidence Action Research Project has achieved over its time in the area as the project work in Wick comes to a close.


This event follows on from one held in August 2023 where, based on feedback from the community, Police Scotland outlined initiatives to try and enhance confidence in policing in Wick and Caithness, and gathered views from the community on these initiatives. These initiatives were set up and put in place during the Autumn and early Winter, and have since been based on community feedback - see the link to the evaluation report below.


This event will outline the work that has been undertaken in Wick as part of this project along with the future of the initiatives undertaken by Police Scotland. We also want to hear from people in Wick on their views of the project and any feedback that could inform learning for future projects.  


This event is open to residents, community groups and others who regularly visit Wick, and refreshments will be provided.


The event forms part of a piece of research which the SPA and Police Scotland are carrying out in various locations across Scotland. The wider research project, which closes in April 2024, has aimed to understand more about confidence in policing in areas that experience deprivation in some way, as national research indicates that confidence in the police is lower. This can mean many different things, for instance not having local access to a GP surgery, or having infrequent public transport links, and is not solely about income or employment.


If you are interested in attending this event, please sign up using this survey or contact us on the details below.  Spaces will be limited and we therefore require people to sign up by Monday 25th March 2024.  We do require names and contact information.  The Scottish Police Authority will hold this personal information (it will not be shared with Police Scotland or any other organisation) - please see the SPA's Privacy Policy.
