Lancashire’s Police and Crime Commissioner is looking to strengthen his team to ensure delivery of his new police and crime plan. Stakeholder engagement, promoting commissioned services and behaviour change marketing campaigns are a key part of the office’s delivery. This role is key to ensuring communities are involved in influencing local policing priorities, building local resilience and ensuring victims of crime receive the help, support and advice they need.
