County police getting even better

Have your say

Over 87% of victims of crime in Derbyshire are satisfied with the level of service they received from the police, figures have revealed.

All police forces in England and Wales have to complete surveys with victims of crime selected at random.

Information provided is then used to address concerns and make changes to working practices or systems.

Derbyshire has moved from being 32nd in England and Wales to 8th.

Chief Constable Mick Creedon, said: “It isn’t all about numbers but importantly it shows what people think of us and how we are continually getting better with the care we provide victims.

“These excellent results don’t happen without a huge amount of hard work. It shows that for our victims we are providing a professional service, communicating well and dealing sensitively with those who are amongst the most vulnerable.”
