Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner Zoe Metcalfe has today launched an online survey which invites the public to complete a set of questions that will gauge the level of public trust and confidence in policing response across North Yorkshire and York.

The survey takes under 5 minutes to complete and is open to everyone, whether they've been a victim of a crime, a witness, a suspect or have an opinion to give on how they would perceive to be treated by the police if a situation occurred.

Responses will influence Commissioner Zoe's wider work, to promote change, ensure accountability and spread best practice and high standards of Police service.

Commissioner Zoe said:

"It is within my role to hold the Chief Constable to account, and so I want to regularly hear from members of the public to understand the level of trust and confidence they have in their police force here in North Yorkshire and York, to ensure it's delivering a service which keeps people safe and feeling safe.

"As set out in my Police and Crime Plan it is a priority of mine to engage with all communities, to identify need and risks and to reassure. I can't do this without your feedback, and whether this is obtained through a survey, at a public event or through one of my advice surgeries, please know that you are listened to and can make a difference.

"It is my intention to see an increase in public trust, confidence and satisfaction over the next two years evident through increased reporting, a reduction in complaints and more positive experiences for those who encounter the police, whoever you are, and wherever you are."

The survey will remain on the Commissioner's Website indefinity and welcomes ongoing responses that will be reviewed on a quarterly basis and published in May 2023
