Have Your Say 2012



Have Your Say Report for 2012 is now available

Have Your Say is the most extensive programme of public consultation run jointly by the Derbyshire Police Authority and Derbyshire Constabulary with assistance from partner organisations.

This year 2,462 residents provided their views on policing in Derbyshire.

Face to face interviews were conducted with 1,714 people at ten events and 748 were received online or by post.

The questionnaire this year concentrated on questions around anti-social behaviour and policing at a local level.

Key Highlights

85.9 per cent of people felt very or fairly safe in their neighbourhood with 7.5 per cent feeling fairly or very unsafe.

76.4 per cent felt very or fairly satisfied with how the police dealt with crime and anti-social behaviour in their area with 10.9 per cent not very or not at all satisfied.

94.7 per cent felt the police were doing an excellent or fair job in policing the area where they live (71.5 per cent excellent and 19.6 per cent fair) with 5.2 per cent in the poor or very poor range.

Respondents were able to rate ten categories of problem behaviour as: not a problem, a small problem, a big problem or a very big problem.

The three biggest problems according to respondents were speeding; inconsiderate parking and other traffic issues and drug-related activity.

Derbyshire Constabulary and the community safety partnerships in the nine council areas the force covers will use the information to see where improvements can be made to the service provided to the public of Derbyshire.

Many thanks to all who gave their time in order to provide their views.
