Aberdeenshire’s Local Policing Plan is reflective of issues that are most important to our communities. Priorities of this plan are:
- Protect and support people considered vulnerable though effective collaboration.
- Reduce the harm caused by Serious Organised Crime including cyber related crime.
- Engage with the public and communities to reduce and prevent crime.
- Collaborate to reduce casualties and crime on our roads.
