FOI 08022019-1 – Force Performance


I read last year that after referral of a very small percentage of residents- over a thousand,  a figure of 61% was quoted of people happy to pay 19 pence per week to pay for extra policing. You then took the decision to charge £1.00 per month extra.

With this increase to residents in Northamptonshire to in your own words  “ provide a first class policing service “  and for the sake of transparency please give the up to date figures for Northants police against other forces in the UK as percentage successes against reported crime in there various sectors. In essence with the extra money given to you,  where in the Police Table of successes do we fit?



Some of the information requested is held by the Office of the Northamptonshire Police and Crime Commissioner.
