This page outlines the current and past consultations within The Durham Police and Crime Commissioner's Office

Current Surveys

We are working with American company Elucd to use innovative technology to improve engagement and understand what the communities across County Durham and Darlington are in relation to policing.

We are the first organisation in Europe to partner with Elucd. The technology uses surveys, through ad space on social media platforms to broaden community engagement, innovative algorithms to ensure that the data collected is from across the community. However, you can access the survey through a weblink too.

This in turn is then used to address the top concerns within communities and can reveal trends. The company have a strong history of working with policing organisations across the world, including the New York City Police Department.

We want to reassure people that if they see an ad for the survey, it is not a scam, it is a genuine survey on behalf of the Police and Crime Commissioner.

This technology will enhance the face to face engagement undertaken by the office. It is very useful during this Covid-19 Crisis, when we aren’t able to speak to people directly.
