Police Data

A key role of your Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) is to hold the Chief Constable to account for their delivery of policing in Norfolk.

There are a number of ways PCC Giles Orpen-Smellie achieves this, one way is through his quarterly PCC Accountability Meetings (PAM) where he publicly questions and challenges the Chief Constable and senior officers to ensure progress is made against the objectives set out in his Police, Crime and Community Safety Plan.

As representative of residents in Norfolk, another way, is by regularly monitoring police performance across a number of areas.

Below you will find more information relating to the different performance mechanisms used to monitor progress by Norfolk Police.

Office for National Statistics

The Office of National Statistics (ONS) releases crime statistics data for all forces in England and Wales on a quarterly basis.

The latest statistics were published on the 27 April 2023 and covered the 12-month period to December 2022 - showing crime in Norfolk increased during this period by 1.8% (66,859 offences to 68,037).

You can visit the ONS website to find out more about national crime trends and our PCC's response to local crime here:

National Crime and Policing Measures

As part of the national Beating Crime Plan, the Home Office has developed National Crime and Policing Measures (NCPM) under six priority areas which have accompanying metrics to help focus effort on key policing priorities, allow performance to be measured and help to demonstrate value for money in policing. 

The National Crime and Policing Measures are to reduce neighbourhood crime, reduce murder and other homicide, reduce serious violence, disrupt drugs supply and county lines, tackle cyber-crime, and improve satisfaction among victims (with a focus on victims of domestic abuse). The measures are to be kept under review and further crime types may be added in the future.

As part of the Specified Information Order every Police and Crime Commissioner is legally required to publish performance updates on these measures following the publication of quarterly crime statistics by the ONS.

Norfolk Constabulary’s latest National Crime and Policing Measures statistics and commentary for the 12 months up to December 2022 can be found below:
