Have Your Say



Background to Have Your Say

Derbyshire Police Authority and Derbyshire Constabulary run the county's widest-reaching face-to-face consultation exercise to gauge public feeling on policing matters. The main programme operated from June to September and venues included market places, shopping centres, community events, supermarkets and the University of Derby.

The events were equally supported by police officers, Police Community Support Officers and Special Constables as well as Police Authority members, Police Authority staff, police staff and members of partner organisations.

Residents were asked to take part in a questionnaire to find out information such as how confident or satisfied they were with the service, whether they were aware of their Safer Neighbourhood team, and what was the most important task for the police in their area.

People were also asked to prioritise different categories of crime according to what they perceived as the biggest problem in their area, how safe they felt and why they did or did not feel safe. They were also asked questions about the impact of anti-social behaviour.

The results of the questionnaire have and will continue to be used to help shape future services and prioritise resources to ensure local people's needs and concerns are being met. The information has also been shared with Community Safety Partnerships to help improve satisfaction levels.
