Have your say on crime and policing in your area

Residents across Derbyshire are being encouraged to complete a short survey on crime and policing in the county. 

Derbyshire Police and Crime Commissioner Hardyal Dhindsa is urging people to take part in his ‘Listening to You’ 2020-21 consultation as he says it will "help him better understand the needs and priorities of the county’s communities". 

The survey asks residents how safe they feel, whether they are satisfied with local policing and how worried they are about certain categories of crime.

It also asks whether local police are doing enough to fight crime in their local area and whether they are aware of the county’s ‘one stop shop’ CORE website which provides a portal of services for victims of crime.

"These surveys result in positive and proactive action to address the matters which cause people misery and this is something I would like to stress," said Mr Dhindsa.

"From previous surveys and my continuous engagement meetings with local residents, I have funded new services and solutions to problems which impact on quality of life. 

"The point is that by providing feedback and opinions, local people can help shape future decisions on where we invest funding and in doing so greatly influence safety across their communities which is good news for everybody.

"My job as Commissioner is to listen and take action on the concerns of local people and I do. But I need to know the full extent of the problems to help me find solutions." 

Mr Dhindsa says The 'Listening to You' survey - the county's largest policing questionnaire - influences the PCC and Chief Constable Rachel Swann's safety plans, enabling them to "match resources to areas of greatest need".
