North Queensferry Community Council Meeting
Thursday 10th January 2019
LOCAL POLICING PLAN 2017 - 2020
The plan outlines our Policing Priorities over the next three years and details how we will deliver them with a view to “Keeping the Kingdom Safe”. The plan looks to deliver on what you, the people of Fife, have told us you want us to focus on. On this basis, we have developed five Local Policing Priorities, which are:
- OPERATION PREVAIL: Anti-Social Behaviour
- OPERATION PROSPECT: Substance Misuse
- OPERATION PRINCIPLE: Acquisitive Crime
- OPERATION PATH: Violent Crime
- OPERATION PARAMOUNT: Road Safety
In addition to these priorities and operations, we cannot lose sight of other national issues and priorities. These include a focus on Serious and Organised Crime, our on-going response to the threat from Terrorism in Scotland and protecting those in our community who are at risk of harm particularly as they travel from place to place and/or attend events. To this end, our Fife Operations Planning Team work closely with Fife Council, event organisers and other emergency services to ensure events in Fife are safe and enjoyable.

PUBLIC CONSULTATION SURVEY
This survey helps us to identify local Policing priorities and should only take a few minutes to complete. The survey can be found at:
We are still looking for volunteers to assist with the Community Speedwatch initiative, where residents can help to reduce speed in their local area.
If anyone would like to take part in the initiative then please pass your contact details on to the Community Council, who can then pass them on to Community Officers.
Speedwatch deployments do not take place over the winter months but will be up and running again in Spring 2019. Details of volunteers can still be submitted.
These monthly visits to Dobbies in Dalgety Bay have been well received by members of the public and will continue in 2019. The next drop in meeting is from 10am to 12pm on Friday 25th January.
Sergeant Kenny Bow has now left his post as Community Sergeant to work in a different role for several months. PS Kate Blackwell (once a community officer in this area) is now the Community Sergeant for the foreseeable.
All crime/incidents should be reported by telephone, as soon as possible, on the following numbers:
PC Richard Duncan and PC Jim Bell are the Community Officers for Dalgety Bay, Hillend, Aberdour, Inverkeithing and North Queensferry.
The public counter at Dalgety Bay Police Station is usually open Monday to Friday, between 9am and 5pm (closed between 12.30pm and 1.30pm). Unfortunately, this can sometimes change at short notice.
Incidents can be reported anonymously to the charity “Crime Stoppers” by dialling 0800 555 111.
