The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC) carries out a wide range of consultations and engagement.
This is to make sure the PCC and his staff know what the people of Cleveland want and need – and the OPCC can work towards meeting their requirements.
Precept 2022-23 Consultation
The PCC has just launched his annual, public consultation on the policing precept for 2022-23.
The precept is the amount of money, which households and businesses pay towards the cost of policing Cleveland with their Council Tax.
Police and Crime Plan 2021-24
Public consultation on priorities forming the draft Police and Crime Plan 2021-24 closed in August. The draft Police and Crime Plan 2021-24 has its own dedicated page.
Victim needs assessment survey
This major study looked into how victims in Cleveland access recovery services. The study aimed to do the following:
- Understand the level and type of victims in the Cleveland Police Force area;
- Identify who victims are, what their support needs are and whether current provision is reaching them;
- Explore why some victims do not reach access support.
The public survey closed in June 2021. Results are now being analysed.
Violence against women and girls
Results from the OPCC’s consultation on feelings of safety in public spaces among women and girls in Cleveland were released in June 2021.
In the survey, more than 81% of women and girls feel unsafe in public spaces across the Cleveland Force area.
Survey results will form the basis of a bid for funding from the Government’s Safer Streets 3 programme.
Rural crime survey
The Tees Rural Crime Forum allows rural residents, land and business owners to share their concerns about rural crime and safety as part of a twice-yearly survey. The latest survey closed in April 2021. Read the full report.

- Mental health
- Drug and alcohol issues
- Relationships between young people and police
- Hate and online crime
