Like other Scottish public sector bodies, the Police are undergoing transformation. The best way to reduce crime is to engage with communities, listen to what people aspire to and support/facilitate the development of activities that allow them to deliver safe, vibrant, flourishing places. We can support a process where local people develop a shared vision and then deliver that vision for themselves.
Research (European as well as UK) confirms that artists are key to this process. We will engage local artists with the expertise necessary to support people to come together, dream, scheme and develop projects that deliver the vision.
