The Police, Crime and Victims’ Commissioner’s (PCVC’s) Annual Report enables the public to monitor the progress towards the objectives in the Police, Crime and Victims’ Plan.
Acting PCVC Steve White said: “Being accountable to the public is important. Durham Constabulary continues to be ONE of the most effective and efficient force in the country, after being rated as outstanding for effectiveness and efficiency by Government inspectors for the fourth consecutive year in a row.
“This success doesn’t mean that the force can sit back, of course. There are more challenges ahead. A commitment to locally-based neighbourhood policing remains, along with the continued drive to raise important issues with Government including a fair level of funding for the Force.”
“This year has also seen the appointment of an excellent new Chief Constable in Jo Farrell, I look forward to working with her, ensuring that Durham remains at the top of its game.”
