NottsWatch Public Perception Survey Results

Alert message sent 28/06/2018 17:13:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch in Nottinghamshire

Dear Citizen,

This is an update as promised following our request earlier this month for you to complete our “Public Perception Survey” ahead of our Neighbourhood Watch Conference on the 23rd June.

To keep relevant to today's Police force and new crime trends, our national team have supported NottsWatch to extend our objectives.  You can read more about this in my Chair's report.

It's important that we monitor our performance and change the way we work, if necessary. We act as a voice of the public to inform the Police at the highest level and our Police and Crime Commissioner regarding your current issues and concerns.

In two short weeks this month 1,879 people took the time to complete our survey and assist us in this important role.

We are incredibly grateful to those that responded, thank you for your support.  As promised, we presented the findings and the attached report to both the Police & Crime Commissioner and Deputy Chief Constable Rachel Barber at our conference.

Both parties gracefully received the report and listened carefully as NottsWatch Vice Chair Paul Macey provided an overview of the results. We have not received a formal response to the findings as yet but will be requesting one on your behalf.

Headline Results:
  • 50% of respondents felt: “More crime in last 12 months
  • Rubbish and Drugs are the top concerns
  • 30% of “other” comments relate to Speeding and parking issues
  • Only 40% felt that the police understand their community issues
  • Only 58% have confidence in the police and 50% in the PCC
  • 426 respondents would like to know more about Neighbourhood Watch
The NottsWatch executive are working on a plan to notify local Coordinators about local people who have said they want to know more about Neighbourhood Watch so they can spring into action.

Thanks you once again if you completed the survey.  We will be repeating the exercise next year and look forward to an improved picture and even greater response.

Best regards

Sue Sambells
