It is important that people can see what I want to achieve and how I am going to measure success. I want to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour (ASB); reduce the number of people on the receiving end of crime and anti-social behaviour; reduce those killed and seriously injured on our roads; and take effective action to reduce the fear of crime.

Reduce Crime and ASB

Achieving a quantifiable reduction in the levels of threat, risk, harm and demand.

Every three months I will:

  • Tell the public exactly how many incidents of ASB the police and local authority have dealt with, whether this has gone up or down and what action is being taken.
  • Publish how many crimes are being committed in different parts of the Durham force area.


How satisfied residents feel about the way the police and council are dealing with local concerns about Anti-Social Behaviour in their area – including results of regular satisfaction surveys.

Reduce Victimisation

Tackling crime and the causes of crime.

Every three months I will report:

  • The number of crimes reported involving serious violence.
  • How many of these are repeat offences.
  • Number of hospital admissions
  • I will tell the public how many victims of crime have been supported.
  • How we are meeting obligations in the Victims Code of Practice.
  • How many victims are satisfied with their service from Durham police.
  • How we are performing as a criminal justice system to bring crimes to justice.

Reduce Deaths and Serious Injuries on the Roads

To have safe roads where drivers, passengers and pedestrians are safe and feel safe.

Every three months I will:

  • Report in the number of people killed on our roads.
  • Report on the number of seriously injured on our road.
  • Report on enforcement action undertaken.
  • Report on take up of safe driving programmes.


  • Publish the revenue received as a result of the provision of driver offending related training and how the revenue has been reinvested.
  • Report the number of road crime victims.

Reduce Fear of Crime

Increasing the public’s confidence in the police and criminal justice system.

Every three months I will:

  • Publish the number of calls being answered within a reasonable time limit for victims.
  • How you feel about the police – including results of regular satisfaction surveys including public confidence data and police insights report.
  • Number and percentage of crimes detected.
  • Publish charging rates.
