Police and Crime Commissioner for West Yorkshire | WYPCC

Drugs and Alcohol Misuse

Substance abuse is often linked to crime and ASB and therefore causes harm not only to the individual but also to the wider community. We cannot hope to reduce crime and reoffending without tackling the underlying problems such as substance abuse, and we can only do this by working together. I will continually review our progress in reducing the number of people struggling with substance abuse, and will work to educate people around the risks of drugs and alcohol.


Drugs and Alcohol Misuse Priority Plan

So that we can all understand more about what we are doing together and want to do together to deliver on our priority areas of work we have developed our 'Priority Plans'.

These plans will be refreshed and renewed and are work in progress but we will report on our delivery against these Priority Plans in public facing Community Outcomes Meetings.

We want to demonstrate the difference we are making in our communities but we also want to know what else we could be doing to keep people in West Yorkshire safe and feeling safe.

If you have a positive contribution to make to our Priority Plans please contact the office.
