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 as a result, the OPCC can work towards meeting their requirements.

Rural Crime Survey
Rural residents, businesses and landowners are being asked about crime in their area – and what they would like Cleveland Police and their partners to do about it.
The Office for the Police and Crime Commissioner for Cleveland (OPCC) has just launched its Rural Crime survey.
It aims to find out about the issues affecting rural communities throughout Cleveland . The survey also wants to know what residents, businesses and landowners would like to see happen to solve those problems.
The survey asks about poaching, theft, criminal damage, trespassing, burglary, domestic abuse and off road vehicles. It also asks about antisocial behaviour, fly tipping and deliberate fire setting.
It aims to find out the extent of problems within rural communities, pinpoint any hot spots and look at what can be done to resolve them.
To take the survey, go to:
Deadline for submissions: 26 April 2023.
The consultation asked members of the public how they would like offenders to make amends to the community for their crimes.
Community Remedies are out-of-court sentencing options, which take place in the community, and are used in cases of antisocial behaviour and lower level crime.
Results of the consultation are published here.
