Scottish Fire and Rescue Services: draft strategic plan

When Scottish Fire and Rescue Services were mapping out their Strategic Plan for 2016-19, they wanted to hear from stakeholders and the public about the proposed outcomes, priorities and objectives. They used Citizen Space to invite comments on the plan online. Based on the feedback received, they made changes to the draft plan, in particular providing further clarification or emphasis where requested.


"I would encourage people to take advantage of this opportunity to be part of the decision-making process and to let their views and ideas for the future be made known."

Police Service of Northern Ireland

Public policing priorities

The Police Service of Northern Ireland and the Northern Ireland Policing Board wanted to hear from the community and key stakeholders on the future of local policing in Northern Ireland. They used a Priority Simulator to put citizens in the driving seat, experiencing first-hand the difficult choices about where resources should go and what areas of policing are prioritised.


"With your input, we will enhance local policing to focus on what matters to you and your community. We need your views on the future of local policing in Northern Ireland – our future, your views."

Chair, Northern Ireland Policing Board
