SIMON Corbell has announced the signing of a new purchase agreement with the AFP for policing services.
“ACT Policing will place special emphasis on a number of key operational issues, including the reduction of alcohol related crime and improving road safety, under a new purchase agreement,” Simon said.
The 2014-15 purchase agreement was signed with the Australian Federal Police Commissioner, Tony Negus, and Chief Police Officer for the ACT, Rudi Lammers.
The 2014-15 purchase agreement includes two new performance measures focussed on “public value”. These measures are:
- Percentage of the community satisfied in general with services provided by police.
- Percentage of the community who have confidence in police.
“The key focus of the purchase agreement signed today has been on understanding and building the community’s confidence, trust and satisfaction with policing services provided to the territory.”
“The government will continue to look at performance against these indicators over the coming year to ensure that our levels of crime and our perceptions of crime are aligned and that the community is not only safe, but feels safe,” Mr Corbell said.
“The ministerial direction I have signed today also requires ACT Policing to give special emphasis to a number of key operational issues in 2014-15, including the reduction of alcohol related crime, improving road safety and further expanding on the great results being achieved across a number of whole of government strategies.”
