Part of the Police and Crime Commissioner role is to listen, respond, and act upon your views, carrying out meaningful consultation with the public to inform the work of the Office.
Listening to the community, business, specialist partners and the Chief Constable’s team, who deliver the operational policing is an important first step before producing a Police and Crime Plan.
Violence Against Women and Girls call for evidence
The Commissioner, is asking residents and practitioners to share their thoughts, views and experiences of Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG). The views and feedback will provide the Commissioner’s VAWG Task Group with a clear understanding of the scale and impact of these crimes across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.
Through this call for evidence the Task Group specifically wants to:
- hear people’s experience of the reporting process
- understand support service capacity
- identify examples of best practice and what is working well locally
- learn about the current challenges in tackling VAWG and what requirements are necessary to improve
Take part in the VAWG Task Group call for evidence by completing the most relevant online survey for you:
- Local residents: http://s.alchemer.eu/s3/Public-VAWG-Survey-2022

- Professionals and experts – http://s.alchemer.eu/s3/VAWG-Practitioner-Survey-2022
Please do not use this call for evidence to report a crime. If you need to, you can call 101 or use the online reporting link: Report a crime | Hampshire Constabulary.

If you are looking to report a VAWG related crime triggered by this call for evidence, please do so via online reporting or 101 ensuring you reference the survey/call for evidence in your submission.
