Year End Performance Report - Report of Chief of Staff


The Panel received a presentation from the PCVC on the Quarter 4/Year End public performance report which contained key performance data for the headline measures of victim based crime, public confidence and victim satisfaction and performance information on each aspect of the current Police, Crime and Victims’ Plan.


Councillor Scott asked whether the increase in mental health related incidents, which took a massive police resource to deal with, was due to insufficient staffing in mental health crisis teams.  The PCVC replied that mental health related incidents did place a massive draw on police resources but added that work had been taking place with mental health crisis teams to streamline systems so that the amount of time police officers spent waiting for services had reduced.


Mr Dodwell referred to Checkpoint and informed the PCVC that Panel members were no longer receiving updates as they previously had.  The PCVC agreed to look in to this and provide members with the Checkpoint newsletter updates.


In response to a question from Councillor Scott the PCVC confirmed that he would be able to provide a breakdown for alcohol and drug related incidents and hate crime incidents by area.



That the report be noted.
