It is our vision – that the public will have even higher levels of trust and confidence in their police…. • What drives public confidence? • Informing and engaging • Proactive and productive visibility Public confidence in policing fell during 2012, but in 2013 there have been early signs of improvement. We are on track to becoming a top ten national performer by 2017 (79%), however, achieving this ambition remains a significant challenge.
Overall satisfaction rates among victims of crime remain strong in Avon and Somerset compared to other Police Force areas • Satisfaction rates: • remain strongest in B&NES (92%) • have fallen from 90% to 86.5% in North Somerset in the last nine months • are below the aspiration in Bristol (85.5%), but improving steadily Police and Crime Plan Aim Avon and Somerset currently has the 13th highest rate of victim satisfaction in England and Wales and is on track to achieve a top 10 national position (88%) by 2017. Satisfaction levels have been at 90% for five out of the last six months.
ASB cases successfully resolved have increased, but satisfaction levels amongst victims of anti-social behaviour have levelled off… • What will drive improvement? • Focus on improving action taken and follow up in these cases Police and Crime Plan Aim Satisfaction rates amongst victims of ASB has levelled off at around 81% and improvements are required in order to meet the 2013/14 milestone. The proportion of ASB cases fully resolved has increased marginally (38.5%) but remains notably low in South Gloucestershire (33%).
Reported sexual offences have increased. Reported domestic violence is showing recent signs of increasing Trend in reported domestic violence (crimes and incidents) • Work is underway to • identify the factors driving this recent increase • promote third party reporting • improve recording practices in this area The Commissioner has set the aspiration to increase confidence amongst victims of domestic and sexual violence to report their victimisation. Serious sexual offence detection rates have fallen from 34% to 27% this year, although a proportion of new cases are progressing through the criminal justice system • Although the reporting of serious sexual offences has increased by around 7% this quarter, domestic violence reporting has fallen by around 4%. • Detection rates for serious sexual offences remain strong at 30.4%, which is the 12th highest rate nationally It is estimated that 60% of domestic violence is not reported to the Police The Commissioner will continue to work with police, partners and the public to increase confidence to report these incidents throughout 2013/14and would like to see a rise in reported incidents.
Burglary rates continue to reduce, while burglary detections have seen an sustained improvement Performance in this area continues to exceeded the ambition for the year. Avon and Somerset now has the 20th lowest burglary rate nationally and 16th highest detection rate. There have ben almost 1,000 fewer victims of burglary compared to the same period last year.
How are we doing so far this year? • Performing well • The number of burglaries continues to fall in line with the ambition for this year, with 922 fewer victims so far • A larger proportion of burglary offences are resulting in suspects being detected for their crimes, with detections having risen from 11.6 % to 13.6% • Confidence to report serious sexual offences has increased over the last year, while reported domestic violence has been increasing over recent months • Areas for improvement • ASB satisfaction rates have levelled off at around 81% and are now falling short of the aspiration for the year. • Although improving, domestic violence reports continue to show a reduction compared to the same period last year. • The serious sexual offence detection rate has slipped from 14th to 18th highest nationally.
