There are encouraging trends around peoples’ awareness of neighbourhood policing teams across the country, as well as increases in their confidence to contact police to ensure the service is more accessible and responsive to local concerns.

ACPO lead on performance management Chief Constable Steve Finnigan said:

“The police service is acutely aware of the importance of ensuring the public have confidence in the work that we do to keep them safe from harm.

“The supplementary British Crime Survey figures which have been released today remain a key indicator to measure public confidence in policing. There are encouraging trends around peoples’ awareness of neighbourhood policing teams across the country, as well as increases in their confidence to contact police to ensure the service is more accessible and responsive to local concerns.

“A big part of the policing mission is around increasing public confidence in local policing services, and increasing the satisfaction members of the public have with the service they receive.

“There is no doubt the funding cuts to the police has presented challenges in protecting the frontline, however, chief constables are committed to maintaining the service’s approach to neighbourhood policing and providing a visible, accessible and responsive service that tackles the issues that matter most to local people.”
