The survey is a chance to influence where police resources will be directed, ask residents about their fear and experience of crime, their experience of crime, what they feel are the priorities for their communities and ask crucial questions about the amount of support residents are prepared to give to police funding through their council tax.

Every year the results have influenced decisions taken about how and where to deploy policing resources. Last year the opinions given by the public played a key role in deciding to launch a dedicated roads policing team and increasing the number of officers dedicated to tackling digital and online crime.
