I just wanted to reach out and introduce myself as the Superintendent for Partnerships in Forth Valley Division.   In the last 27 years, I don’t think I have worked through such a unique situation as the current Coronavirus pandemic. Whilst there is understandable anxiety around what the future might bring, a real positive from this has been the evidence of community spirit across the whole Forth Valley area.

I would just like to take the opportunity to thank you personally for the high levels of compliance with Government guidance we have seen locally.    This all helps protect the resilience of NHS and hopefully save lives.

For policing, playing our part in supporting the critical role of our partners in Public Health to protect our communities from Covid 19 is a vitally important piece of work.  We are really keen to get an understanding of how people are feeling at the moment across our communities and how we might use this to develop our policing approach over the forthcoming months.

To this end, I would really appreciate if you could spare a few minutes to follow the below link and complete the survey.   The survey can be completed from your perspective as a resident or your employment, whichever feels most relevant in terms of feedback.


Best wishes and please look after yourselves.

Mandy Paterson
