The police and crime commissioner is responsible for the performance of your police force and they are required to publish information so they can be held to account.

You can use the information they provide as well as the tools on to see how the police where you live are performing and how they compare to similar forces or areas.

The police says that if you have questions about police performance or what they are doing about a particular crime or issue in your area, ask them.

You can get in touch with your Neighbourhood Policing Team, attend a local ‘beat meeting’, email your police and crime commissioner or get involved through a local action group such as Neighbourhood Watch.
