The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC) carries out a wide range of consultations and engagement.
This is to make sure staff know what the people of Cleveland want and need – and the OPCC can work towards meeting their requirements.
Rural crime survey
The Tees Rural Crime Forum wants rural residents, land and business owners to share their concerns about rural crime and safety as part of a twice-yearly survey.
The survey seeks to understand what crimes rural communities are most worried about and what they believe should be done to protect them.
The Rural Crime Forum brings together Cleveland Police, the OPCC, local authorities, the Environment Agency, Cleveland Fire Brigade, the Wildlife Trust and the National Farmers Union to discuss issues relevant to the rural community.
The survey is accessed online.
The survey closes on Monday 12 April 2021.
Youth survey into crime
As part of its Big Conversation, Cleveland Youth Commission looked at young people’s views on the following:
- Mental health
- Drug and alcohol issues
- Relationships between young people and police
- Hate and online crime
- Youth activities and preventing re-offending
Aimed at young people, aged 14 to 25, the results of the Big Conversation were presented at a virtual conference in March 2021. The full report is now available on this website.
Precept 2021/22 Consultation
The Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) must make arrangements to obtain the views of ratepayers’ – and their representatives’- on proposals for spending for the forthcoming financial year.
This year, we asked residents about the following:
- The amount of police precept they were willing to pay;
- Their perceptions of the affordability of precept increases;
- Their priorities for commissioned services.
At the same time as the precept consultation, Cleveland Police ran the Communities Survey. Both took place between December 2020 and January 2021.
Cleveland Police’s survey focussed on the public’s priorities around crime and anti-social behaviour to help Cleveland Police to decide where it should focus resources.
The results of this survey were added to the outcome of the Precept Consultation in order to provide a broader indication of where the public feel police should focus funding.
