PEOPLE living in the Highlands are being asked to tell the police about their priorities.

The Highlands and Islands division of Police Scotland is joining the force in asking people in the area to have their say about what most important to them.

A message flagging up an online survey states: "We’d like to know what issues you think we should prioritise, how you feel about policing in your local area and how you’d like us to communicate with you. Your views are important to us. We’ll use this information to help shape our priorities over the next three years. Local policing is at the very heart of Police Scotland. Highland and Islands Division is committed to listening to you and ensuring we continue to provide a high standard of service to our communities."

The survey tells participants: "Your views are important to us and we are committed to using this information to shape our policing priorities – both locally in your area and nationally. We will do this through analysing your feedback and looking at data from a number of other important sources such as local and national crime trends. What you tell us will also influence how we communicate and engage with you and your community."

The survey is open until December 31.
