What do you think the key role of the police service is, and what skills do you bring to the service in order to execute that role’?

The roles of the police service are to maintain public order by combating organised crime, countering the threat of terrorism and acting against anti-social behaviour. Police officers work in collaboration with the communities in which they serve to maintain law and order and protect members of the public as well as their property and reduce the fear of crime. They work to support visible, accountable and responsive policing through empowering the public.
