Putting your plan in action

I will publish regular crime and policing data to show you –

  • REDUCING CRIME – How many crimes are being committed in different parts of the Northumbria force area.
  • PREVENTING VIOLENT CRIME – The number of crimes involving serious violence with a knife, and the number of hospital admissions for knife-related serious violence.
  • NEIGHBOURHOOD POLICING – How local residents feel about the police – including the results of regular satisfaction surveys including public confidence data and police insights reports.
  • SUPPORT FOR VICTIMS  – I will tell the public exactly how many victims of crime have been supported, how many are satisfied with their service from Northumbria
    Police and how we are meeting obligations in the Victims’ Code of Practice.
  • TACKLING DOMESTIC ABUSE AND SEXUAL VIOLENCE – I will tell the public exactly how many victims have reported these crimes, how many of these are repeat incidents and how many victims are satisfied with their service from Northumbria Police.
